I;ve been spinning fiber i dyed with easter egg dyes, and have spun unough for a pain of single ply socks, plus lots of other random combos of sive/thinkneess.wpi. the cable knit socks im making atm are made in a raindow heel/toe with pastelish stripes (stripes are spun in liek that- its pretty cool), and it has cables up the top only. each toes neelde (using 2) hold 26, starts w 8 w fig 8 co. yarn = single ply, 20-24 wpi. I also finished a scarf using shredded linen (yellow) carded with wool, knit on size 17 needles. Spun a second batch of shredded yarn- in a light blue fabric and bright (read pink and neon green) wool. Even my mom liked that....it will become a scarf too. its kinda delicate though because it has a lot of short threads. ATM im spining some laceweight yarn (it will be thinker once plyed). It is being spun from a randomly carded wools in bright pinks, oranges, blues, and yellows, mixed w a pale green/blue/white/yellow background.
Saw A, went to see thewholetenyards. saw it twice during break actually. good movie. Cut my hair *shorter*- always good. the shorter the better imo.

THey are a pretty water/sea colors, and are laceweight b4 i ply them, dk to worsted depending on wether i 2 ply (ply 2 singles) or navajo ply them. today i dyed several small batches of roving using easter egg dye, and got (obviously) light pastel shades. pretty cool, will make a nice light color pair of socks, or gloves...hmm... :)
