My sockamania sock

Well, here it is. I hope this is a nice enough picture that you all can tell me I did it right. I just finished round 13. In person I think the tension is a little off but I can deal with that. It is the learning of how to do cables that matters right now. WOOSH... (wiping sweat off forehead)

Our first dye experience.

I hope these are clear enough for you all to see. Ky had such a blast doing this.

Hi everyone, Well here is my first blog posting. Today my DD and I dyed some sock yarn. We had a great time trying to figure out what to use for the base color. She picked purple. I had to explain to her that because we are going to be covering color that she needs to think about what the previous color will look. She still wanted purple. We are now finished and waiting for the yarn to dry. As you can see we were working with red, white and blue.

The steps we took did not give us the color we wanted the first time. So we gave it another dye bath of purple. I think for our first time the colors turned out pretty good. I do have some blotchy spots but it adds life to the new color. Happy knitting all! til next time
