Handspun Merino/Nylon Pencil Roving

I spun up some roving from my shop this weekend. Can't wait to start knitting with it. I went for a fairly thick sock yarn to make some quick socks for the boys for Christmas. Dave Ramsey says "Christmas is a craft" while you are dumping debt and this will definitely be true for us this year. :)

Here's half of the dyed roving.

Here's the other half already spun on my Julia.

And after plying the two singles together ...

WALLA ... we have yarn! :)
