Spindle project plied up! On to knitting...

I finished up my spindle camping project this weekend. There was such a small amount left to spin, it just called to me. I sat on the deck and spun up the last little bit.

It was 6 ounces of superwash merino that I solar dyed in a one gallon jar last summer.

I navajo plied it on my Lendrum. It's 18 to 20 wraps per inch, and it's REALLY soft. Not incredibly even in size - that happens when I pick up this spindle so infrequently. However, I'm pleased!

Now, socks or what??

Solar dyed? That sounds intriguing. Got some details?
