My First Sock Yarn

 Using natural colored Shetland top I spun my first sock yarn.  I plied three strands together with plenty of twist.  I've been reading about spinning sock yarn for years but hadn't tackled it until now.
The pattern, called Canal Du Midi, came from Nancy Bush's book: Knitting on the Road.  I used size 0 needles.

Now I understand the sock knitting craze---it's so fun!
