This is what I do every year with the leftover Easter egg dye. That's
about 6oz of mediocre white Corriedale wool. When it is dry I'll
chuck it in a bin with wool from years past and maybe one day it'll
spontaneously spin itself and become worth of socks. Or something :D
I finished a pair of Incredibly Ugly Trekking sox this week and I have
the first of a pair of CTH socks on needles. Froghair for the next
handspun sweater proceeds slowly (an ounce per day at most), and I'm
making slow progress on a tight-gauge commercial yarn sweater as well.
My physical terrorist has told me I should do no more than 10 mins of
pinch-intensive activity at a time, so I spin or knit for 10 minutes,
then hike around the block while doing my thumb excercises. The
neighbors who know me have seen me in various immobilization devices
so don't think anything of my thumbwaving. The new people in the
renthouse next door probably think I'm cracked, as I hustle around the
block waving my thumbs hehehe
