Weekly spin -- cave dwellings

I have still been spinning every week, but most of it has been super-secret spinning for Fluff, which I'll be telling you all about soon enough! I did take some personal time, though, and spin up this fingering-weight, two ply from Hello Yarn Club. The colorway is called 'Cave Dwellings' and the fiber is merino with tussah silk.

I knew right away that I really wanted this yarn to become socks. Susan B. Anderson recently posted a lovely and enviable photo on her blog, which she now has as her header, of her sock drawer. I would love nothing more than to have a drawer full of handmade, and sometimes handspun, socks -- and sometimes the best place to start is by spinning some yarn. This yarn is around 318 yards, but it will be perfect for some toe-up, quick and easy, two at a time socks.
