Merino Roving for Sock Yarn

Merino Roving for Sock Yarn, originally uploaded by vickijensen.

I recently dyed this Merino Roving to spin some sock yarn, after being inspired by the article by Janet Laidman in the Summer 2007 issue of Spin-Off. Her article focused on a way to make your own self-striping yarn. So I chose my favorite three colors: olive green, rust and purple and am ready to give this a try. The weather here today is awful - lots of rain and high winds, so it is a perfect day to get some spinning done.
