I finished the third lot of handspun sock yarn for my NEWT today, the one I called Marius, that is blue, purple and redNOTPINK. (Marius really is not a pink sort of guy. But a good red is difficult to dye, apparently, and mixing white mohair into it does not help.)
This one is not as thin as the other two. It's still 18 wraps per inch, but the 209g measured just under 400m. I think it's more of a sport weight or dk than fingering, so I might try 3.25mm needles for the socks.

4290m (4692y) of handspun singles.
I also finished the first pair of socks, made from hanspun merino/nylon that I dyed and spun a few months back, and called "10nant". (I've gotten addicted to Dr Who)
