Simple Homestead Hop #109



Welcome to the Hop!

How are things on your homestead this first week of summer? 
We are hoping that we can get at least three days of no rain, so we can get our second cut of hay in the barn. The lambs are getting old enough to wean(so hard to believe it is that time already). 

Please join us this week and share your Homemaking, Homesteading, and Homeschooling Post!

Second Attempt at Handspinning Tunis Wool Sock Yarn




A couple months ago I decided to try my hand at spinning some 3 ply sock yarn from our Tunis wool. My result was a bulky weight yarn that I used for slipper socks.




I decided to try again, practice makes perfect, right?

After spinning some thinner singles, and plying them together, I used my handy WPI (wraps per inch) tool to see the result. It wasn't the "sport weight" that I was trying for, but it was far from bulky. I managed to spin a 3 ply DK weight (barely) but it will work for another sock pattern I found on Ravelry.





Unfortunately, once I checked the yardage I had spun, I have enough yarn for just one sock, So, I am back to the wheel, spinning more yarn.



It will be a while before I will be ready to knit socks. After I have the amount of yarn I need, I need to dye the yarn before knitting.
