I finished spinning up 200g of Corriedale roving. I am happy with the results. Before I spin up something else I wanted to knit a bit of this up to see how it looks. I plan to spin for a sweater I want to knit, but I needed to see what gauge this knit up to, so I have a better idea of how to spin the yarn for the sweater I have in mind.

I it is 2 ply and 12-13 wpi. I am going to knit a pair of socks out if it to see how far 200g of roving goes at this gauge.

7 sts per inch on 2.5mm needles. I am hoping to cast on for the first sock today, but first there is laundry to fold and some chores to do.
