Yet another pair finished from Cotton and Cloud's Ginkgo Socks pattern.
I've posted a couple of pictures of the progress on Woolly Wednesdays but here's a mosaic of the whole story from Yummy Yarns bamboo / merino in Water Sprite through to finished socks.
Freyalan's suggestion I spun very thin (by spindle) and navajo / chain plied. I love n-ply because it evens out inconsistency better than two ply, and keeps the colours separate rather than mixing them up.
I did have high hopes that this time I'd have matching socks. I guess that I didn't split the fibre exactly down the middle, or spun one half a little more fine than the other.
All of the pictures are here on Flickr, and the project is here on Ravelry
