50 for 2011: #1 pink sock yarn

pink yarn
well, pink and red and orange and purple, really

100g superwash merino with some nylon in one ply.

A bit over spun, but fairly even in width, so I'm pretty pleased.

I saw a few unhappy things while skeining it up, but my approach is to excise them during knitting.  No one will know! (apart from all you people I just mentioned it to on the internet!  The perfect crime!)

(For the sake of accurate record keeping, I should add that this is spun from my own hand-dyed roving... one ply is pink nylon roving blended with purple superwash merino, the other is red, purple, orange, and pink superwash merino roving.)
