spinning for socks

snobby spinners is doing a spinalong/knitalong for handspun socks. after finishing the Carnivale yarn, i was still in the mood for bright colors. i had bought this gale's art merino specifically for socks. i recall seeing this sock on ravelry and wanting a pair for myself.
Gale's Art Merino
i split the fiber in half vertically and am spinning one staple length at a time longdraw from the fold. i've already spun and plied half of the fiber and this is the second half. it looks really good so far--nice and bouncy. i'm planning to full the yarn when it's finished to add durability.

i'm not sure when i'll have time to knit the socks but at least i'll have the yarn ready to go.
