My favorite pair of socks are made from a merino/silk yarn so wouldn't it be great to do something along those lines? But I don't have any yarn like that. But I do have roving. I have some amazing Blue-faced Leicester (which, while it's not Merino, it's either the next best thing or it's the better thing)/tussah silk blend roving. THAT could make some amazing socks.
But of course, roving is not yarn. Roving makes yarn but it's not yarn.
When you spin the roving, though, you can make the yarn.
So last night I started. And tonight I finished.
