2nd Pair Done


The second pair of handspun socks are done and I just...just...had enough yarn to finish. I think I have about 6 yards of yarn left! The only concession I made was to make the top 6" instead of my usual 7". They have nice heft to them, without being as heavy as the first pair.

The new pair is on the right.


They have a great sheen to them and are very soft. Now on to the next project.....

I make my socks shorter in the leg anyway. Just prefer them that way.

Have you started spinning your alpaca?

Socks look great!
