2007, Fall: Sock Yarns
In our Summer 2006 issue, we asked you about Your Yarn in our survey. Nearly one-third of those who responded liked the feature but wanted to see it take up fewer pages in the magazine.
Forty-four different spinners participated in this issue’s challenge; each is represented by one of the sixty-one yarns submitted. Of the fortyfour
sock yarns showcased, 7% are Navajo-plied, 28% are 2 ply, 16% are 3 ply, 18% are superwash, and 11% incorporate silk. Eleven yarns are featured in the Fall 2007 issue; thirty-three more sock yarns are presented here. Five members of the Illinois Prairie Spinners sent in samples collected during their annual Spinning retreat last May: Mickey Anderson, Diane Rodenbostel, Jan Wilt, Deirdre Swift, and Cindy Bennish. We’d love to hear from your spinning group, and be sure to visit www.spinnersconnection.com to share ideas on activities. Yarns are shown at 100%. Details show the yarns magnified at 170%.
