Harvest Sock Swap

Originally uploaded by micenrats99

I dyed this yarn for the swap. It's a little bit lighter and a little bit more green than what shows up on my screen. I used several different strengths of the same color dye. The pattern I chose probably would look best in a single color. I think the shading will make it a little more interesting. I hope my partner likes the color.

I'm going to start working on it in a little while. It's a good tee vee night.

That yarn is lovely! Did you paint the yarn with the different shades, or do a rainbow-style crock pot dye with them? Semi-solid yarns like that are my favorite to knit with, and I'd love to learn how you dyed it that way, since I'm just starting out to learn dyeing!

Off topic... since you mentioned that you don't really use stitch markers, I thought I would try to make you a set that could be worn as jewelry instead. Do you have pierced ears?

Your HSKS3 partner, Melissa

I'll do a post that tells how I dyed it. Thanks for asking about the stitch markers. Yes, I have pierced ears. I'm kind of old-fashioned, only once in each ear. :)
