A Sunday some weekends ago, I attended a workshop in dyeing yarn. This was my second attendance, and one of the news was the ability to dye sock yarn!
I really want a pair of kneesocks and I thought it'd be a fun thing to make them out of a yarn I had dyed myself. I aimed for beige, natural, lightly brown or something to that category. I ended up with a soggy and washed out pink... Don't ask me what happened...
The hanks look alright in some lights and just dirty in other surroundings. I keep looking at them and I can't really make up my mind about them. Do I like them or not? I think I'll knit a couple of rows to see how it all comes out and then decide if they're kneesock material for me.
My hanks came up veeeery tangled from the pots. Friday night this happened:
Now I just have to decide its fate.
