I found this merino fiber in the bottom of my fiber stash. I'd forgotten all about it! I spun it up with no project in mind other than to reduce my fiber stash.

This mohair and silk blend was also in my fiber stash. I still have a ton of it to spin up!

I plied them together to about sport weight

I knit up a tube sock with 3 mm dpns and a 48 st cast on. It felt pretty good on my foot!

I really didn't like the colours one bit!
So .....

I threw the pair into a dye pot. They look a little better but still not great.
Oh well, back to the drawing board......

The top down raglan is still OTN.

Stockinette is boring so I work on it when I need "no-brain" knitting.
