This past summer my friends and I dyed sock blanks from Knit Picks. If you’ve been following along, I’ve been periodically posting pictures of the various items made from these sock blanks as they’re finished. Here’s Anita holding her dyed blank.
She made lengthwise stripes in blue and green, which resulted in these fabulous stripey socks for her DH:
The pattern is from a sock class she took at our LYS.
I’m always so amazed with these projects because I can never guess what the yarn will look like once it’s knitted up. I may be over analyzing these socks, but can you see the little stripe of light green inside the dark blue stripes? It’s more noticable in the first picture if you squint your eyes. It’s like looking into rippling waves out in the ocean. I give these a thumbs up!
Yet another Embossed Leaves socks update
I turned the heel on sock #2 (yay!) and now I’m at the point where I pick up stitches along the heel flap. I kid you not, I spent my entire bus commute this morning trying to pick up stitches along one side of the heel flap. It was a really bumpy ride. Giant potholes and knitting on size 1 needles do not mix. Potholes or no potholes, I’m still loving these socks.
