I just finished this a few days ago, and am actually knitting with it now.  here's my first wheel spun single:

here's the 2nd single:

here they are plied together:

and here it is dyed up ready to knit:

then I blended 25% nylon 75% wool on my new drum carder and dyed this roving:

I'm hoping it'll be sock yarn someday.

what do ya think?

I'm very curious what it would look like knitted up. It looks very nice though  Smiley

It looks like it will make a very pretty sock!

i love the colors in the first dyed picture--the blues and greys. what did you use to dye it? (i'm only familiar with kool-aid dyeing, and you don't get such subtle, pretty colors with that usually.)

you're not dying. you just can't think of anything good to do.
