I really didn't feel like redoing the pink pirate sock right now. It took quite a while and I was disappointed enough with my end product to want something quick and easy. I started this rainbow coloured sock 2 days ago and I'm already at the heel flap. It's just a plain 2/2 rib, so fast and easy. I dyed the yarn last year and it's aged enough that I can finally use it.
I started spinning some of the fibre I dyed last week. It's a bright blend of yellow and oranges. It's superwash merino, so a tad slippery, but fairly easy to spin since it doesn't compact in the dyeing process. It's a fairly fast spin because it's drafting so smoothly. That easy drafting also makes it very enjoyable to spin. No struggling with this one!
Yesterday it was sunny and warmish. I hung out my laundry and when I looked around the yarn, I noticed that this clump of mini-daffodils was blooming. It just happened overnight, since they weren't there the day before. How bright and sunny they are! The larger daffodils will be a few more days before they start to bloom. I do enjoy these really early blooms, even though they are small and delicate. They do make a statement when planted en masse!
