There is always an exception to the rule.

These are socks I just finished knitting, I had to make an exception to my New Years Resolution to only knit UFOs and gifts because I was dying to knit this yarn. So now there is an exception for handspun. I had never made plain jane socks before, they knit up fast! The roving is from Spunky Eclectic. It is Finn and the colorway is called Acadia. I spun it as a 3 ply and ended up with 210 yards from 4 oz. The socks were knit toe up on size 2 needles and I even had a little left over. They make me happy.

Just "plain" socks are fun sometimes, ha? They do knit up so fast! I love your yarn! :) Great job!

It's fun to let the yarn do the work, and you have beautiful yarn to work with. Wear them proud....
