I'm new to this site and thought I would share my first pair of socks ever! It was a Christmas gift for my sister when she goes skiing. I got the fleece from a member from our local Fiber Guild. This was my first time in spinning 70% Merino and 30% Alpaca /single ply. I got the instructions off the Web esp. for beginners. It was a bit challenging for me but a good experience. One main lesson is that it is best spun in fine a tpi.
