Yarn cocktails that is. So I have definitely been adding to the stash, and without buying a thing! I still have some more yarn in the works with hopes that I finish it before the wheel moves on later this week, but if not I will get it done on a tv night visit later.

First we have some 3-ply sock yarn I made to knit socks for the hubby. I used the Down in Flames Spunky sock spinning kit. And man it seems to have a lot of yardage! So perhaps I will get matching footies out of it too. But this was fun because I spun the yellow/orange, red, and black fluff separatly and triple plied it so it is mostly the same throughout but with little changes in the yellow orange strand and the red strand changes to pinkish sometimes, but the black is steady. Should be interesting to see how it knits up. The little skein is the nylon plied with what was left to knit the heels and toes.

Next up is the Finn. This is Spunky's November selection called "Pie in the Sky" I really love this colorway and it is a pretty wooly yarn. Not sure yet what I will use it for but it will be something warm.

I just did a 2-ply for this one.

And below is some of Spunky's Berry Pickin' BFL. Navajo Plied. This came out super soft and airy, a fun pair of gloves perhaps? I think it might be more of a DK weight yarn.

Then I spun up the March Spunky Club fiber, Dandelion, superwash merino. This I did 2-ply and am thinking some sort of cheery shawl may come out of it.

Ok that is it for now. I guess it is a good the the wheel will be going, now I might actually knit some of this up :)

P.S. Can you tell how much I love Spunky's fiber? Maybe it is cause she is an Amy too!
