I was finished at the dye day and cleaning up when Lindsey said, here - try these. She pulled sock blanks from her soak water and challenged me - go for it. Lindsey is a life force. We need more Lindseys.
I picked three colors -I'm a Fibonacci kind of girl. My colors of choice were turquoise, gold and red violet daubed on with stencil brushes.
After I got home, I rinsed the blanks, let them dry, then pulled out the yarn and wound it onto my knitty knotty. I know that some people knit as they unravel, but I need a little more control than that.
I am happier knitting socks from these center-
pull balls. I hope this doesn't label me as a control freak. Oh wait.
And here they are, the fraternal sock twins. It was a fun project, from start to finish. After seeing how harsh this path is for sock color, I'm not sure I'd take it again. The yarn showed obvious signs of stress. Just the same, it was fun.
He got another pretty ribbon!
