I Finally Did it
Honestly, I have said this so many times through my knitting journey. I said it when I made my first sock, my first shawl, my first i-cord shoulder/neck sweater. There will always be firsts because there is so much to learn.
I have been wanting to spin up yarn for a pair of slipper socks. And yes, I finally did it. I fell in love with this purple roving. To show people how to use the drop spindle, I started to spin it up. It turned out beautiful.
I ended up keep the purple roving for myself. I just had to create a small knit project with it.
I decided to spin up some natural black Coopworth.
I spun up my black with my spinning wheel because I wanted to hurry up and knit those socks.
I am definitely not well versed in the specifics of spinning. I used a size 4 knitting needle and I was knitting any yarn weight from lace to worsted. It was quite a knitting experience.
Here is the finished pair. They are my favorite to wear with my crocks. Nothing beats homespun slipper socks.
You will have to spin and knit your own.
