Lanaset, perhaps??

I've not used the Ashford dyes yet, however Dharma & Jacquard give beautiful results!

Isn't it a sheer thrill when you receive a big bump of fiber Cheesy 

A few times I've couldn't decide what colors to use so I've closed my eyes and randomly picked jars of dye and went with what ever color combo ... it worked well

Another tip for you, Bella ...

Always knit the second sock first and the first sock last ...

No second sock syndrome that way ...  Wink

You're rocking it, Bella! 

For turning the heel, I always knit (or purl) 2 stitches past mid point, K2T (or P2T), W&T. Purl (or knit) 5 stitches P2T (or K2T), W&T.  For the rest of the rows, I knit or purl *up to* the wrapped stitch & use that in my K2T or P2T. 

For the gusset I pick up however many stitches fit comfortably coming up the side of the heel flap and put in an extra stitch between the flap & the instep so you don't have hole right there.  Make sure you write down how many stitches you picked up because you need to pick up the same number on the other side of the heel flap!!  I use a crochet hook to pick up the heel flap stitches. When I have 10 or so on the hook, I transfer them to the needle.

These are so great. I am currently knitting myself a scarf to get back into it, but once that is finished I'm planning to move onto socks. Do you have any patterns you would recommend?

I love how Corrie takes up dye.

What dyes are you using, Bella?

Alexus, supported spindle IS a real spindle!!  Looks great!

Bella, I love, love, love corriedale.  Hope you have enough for a squishy cowl.  Just beautifully spun!

No spinning for me for a while.  I broke my fibula and ankle (actually, the tibia was totally separated from the talus) at the end of December.  Two surgeries, an external fixator and splints later, I'll finally be ready for cast on Monday.

Bonus:  when time comes for PT in a couple months, I'm betting spinning will be high on the list of good things to do!

Gorgeous, beautiful, loverly!!

I'm out of the spinning department for a few months .... broke my ankle pretty badly, should have lost the foot, but I have plenty of yarn stashed and knitting to do.
