indigo handspun socks

indigo handspun socks, originally uploaded by Sophie_vf.
as anticipated, these are coming out a bit quirky. I figured the thick-and-thinness of my handspun would even itself out at some point, but a sudden change in gauge resulted in a narrowing just above the ankle. Then suddenly I had all thick yarn for the heel, so I have a monstrously thick (albeit very cushy) heel.

I was completely wrong about having enough yarn for these already - my highly scientific method of estimation failed - so I've been spinning and plying more to make sure I can actually have toes for these socks. We've already had a light frost here in southern Alberta, so alas - closed toe shoes and socks are in the offing.
