The yarn's some of my handspun, from a 'bump' of a merino/bamboo blend that I bought from World of Wool. There was nothing wrong with the fibre - it was nice to spin, but I should have thought more about how I was spinning it. The colours have merged into a bit of a 'meurgh' heathery yarn with bits of bottle green and bright pink here and there. That's why the yarn's become socks.

This does mean that I don't have any socks on my needles at all. I can't remember the last time that happened. I also have nothing on my spinning wheel either, so I might have a delve into my fibre stash and choose something to spin.
I also want to get on and make something from these:
There are 42 five-inch squares in this pack and I'm going to make them into a patchwork, quilted pad-type thing to go on my coffee table and protect the table from my laptop. I think I'm going to get DD2 to help me decide which square will go where :)
