Back to basics - 3 ply Merino

Being sick means I'm spending a lot of time at home.

I bought this fiber from Royale Hare at Stitches West in 2008. The colorway is called Bloomfield Blues and unfortunately the photos do not accurately show the blues and teals. I'm not used to plying energized singles because typically months go by before the singles become yarn. This time was different--I may have put a bit too much twist into the yarn, but that'll be good for socks, right?
