Orchid Swamp Falklands

Whee! I love this one.

 

This is fractally spun. I split the top of half lengthwise and spun half from the end onto one bobbin. Split the other half into fourths and spun each from the end, starting with the same end, onto a second bobbin, then plied the bobbins together.

 

Fiber: Hello Yarn Falklands wool in Orchid Swamp

Yarn: sport weight (14 wpi) 2 ply, 366 yards and 4 oz.

 

I did that thing where, when I ran out of yarn on one bobbin, there were only about 8 inches of single on the other bobbin. I do a quiet fist pump/YESSSSS when this happens.

 

This is for socks. Glorious, stripy socks of goodness.
