From Sheep to Sock

So far, I figure, that it has cost me about $500 to make this little skein of yarn.

It all started with a box of this dirty old stuff.

Then I had to buy a bunch of these things in different sizes to straighten out the mess I made when I washed it.

That gave me a few handfuls of this nubby stuff to spin on that used Ashford Traveler that I had sent all the way from New Zealand.

The resulting yarn still has enough vm in it to give you splinters but I'm determined... there will be socks.


  1. Good for you! I've yet to knit anything out of my home spun. You've got great ambition.

  2. And apparently not much sense.
    This little pastime is starting to take over my life! :D
