Yarnia I selected one strand of bamboo and three strands of Moreno wool and created my own sock yarn. I tried to go subtle with my color selections and now I kinda wish I had chosen a little more contrast. The gall at the store took my selections and then loaded them on a machine that combines the fibers and spins them onto a cone. This was a new experience for me.
When I got home, I started making a swatch for the Skyp socks. I really like the feel of this yarn and the pattern is pretty easy, too. I do have to be careful not to split the fibers since they are not twisted like other yarns I've used. I'm looking forward to starting these socks for real.
Be sure to visit Patchwork Times and see what others have on their needles this week. Lots of socks being made out there in blog-land.
