I can haz a yarn.

Actually, I can make a yarn! I’ve had this Blue Moon Fiber Arts S2S kit (Atomic 6) in my stash for well over a year. Maybe even close on to two. It was given to me in a secret pal swap. I was overjoyed to get it then and have been overjoyed to spin it now. Thanks again Secret Pal, you gave me a double dose of joy!!

I’d been saving it until I felt “good” enough to spin such amazing top, and I finally felt like maybe my skills were up to the challenge.

I take lousy pictures and my camera isn’t great, but you get the idea. It is, without a doubt, the most consistent yarn I’ve ever spun in terms of wpi, and it’s definitely right in the heavy fingering/light sport weight ballpark. I have at least 640 yards, possibly even in the >700 yard range. I could not be happier! My only complaint is that I have no attention span so by about the third bobbin I was really getting impatient to get to the plying. These kits are very generous. I had 3 bobbins filled >3/4 of the way full by the end of spinning.

The plan is plain toe up socks, as long as I can knit them, just plan to keep going until the yarn runs out and the socks are about even.

Pure socky wonderment.
