The Ladybug Socks
The Ladybug spun up 4 ounces of the Mohair, Icelandic, soy and silk sock fiber in no time at all. After treadling away on my elderly pre-owned Ashfords for several years, having a new wobble free wheel is like driving a luxury car. Although I usually hate Mohair, I love the feel of this 2 ply yarn and the way if absorbed the dye. Of course this project is not worry free. I have 76 grams of the red and only 33 grams of the black so I am afraid I am not going to have as many black spots as I wanted.
