I finished up the second bobbin of my handdyed GCNI/Mohair singles. I'll wait until later this week to ply it since I finished the first bobbin over a week ago. This is going to be some seriously fun sock yarn! I did not spin this yarn to be fingering weight, it's a sport weight. When I spin for socks, I purposely spin heavier than the average sock yarn for a couple of reasons: it gives me thicker socks to wear around the house and sleep in, and if I always spun fingering weight I might feel like I shouldn't buy sock yarn since I can spin it. There are just too many really great sock yarns out there for me to limit myself this way. At least that's the way I see it.
