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.
