I spun and then plyed two bobbins full of wool, which gave me four and a half skeins. That should be enough for two pairs of socks. I think. I washed and dried the skeins and then started knitting the first sock. I didn't dye this lot, the natural colour is pretty and I thoughtthat combined with an easy lace stitch, it would be fine. The heel is turned, I'm onto the easy foot part.
