So this is the resulting yarn from trying to spin like Crown Mountain Farm's Sock Hop sock yarn. It's really nice stuff, springy and silky and solid as a rock but not nearly as hard.

The best thing is that I'm finally knitting some of my handspuns and there's nothing nearly as critical as going, centimeter by centimeter through a skein of yarn while knitting it on US #1 needles. Each tiny blemish is nearly a whole stitch at that scale. Nice thing is that after so many years of practice, I can honestly say I don't have the thicks and thins the way I used to. And this yarn makes for extremely springy, solid socks.

Jet put on the first one before I had the toe all in, yet, and he said, "It's hugging my foot, Mom!" Hee.
