This is a sock I knitted from one of my previous dye efforts with KP Wool of the Andes Worsted. You can find the skein in an earlier post. There will be enough for a pair of women's 8 socks. Hmm...just my size.
This was yesterday's experiment. I started with a white Wool of the Andes skein and did the easter-egg dip with several colours.
Then I intensified some spots as per yesterday's "spotch" method. Such a technical term: Spotch.
It's still damp here, but this is what the skein looks like if I don't rewind it. I like this look. It reminds me of a summer flower garden.
This is what it looks like dry and re-distributed. The re-distribution gives a somewhat more accurate view of what it will look like when knitted. The two contrasting colourways will knit differently in this one because they are longer. I'm wondering if with socks, it will almost stripe. This one makes me laugh out loud, it is so cheerful. The colours came out so clear, without any muddying.
This is that tweedy ball of Patons Classic Tweed. I overdyed it into one of my infamous camo-ways.
I've had a lot of interesting comments in the last few days and in emails. I will respond to some of those later today. As for taking orders...is anyone interested? I ordered some undyed sock yarn from a distributor called Wool 2Dye4. That should be fun!
