I finished the second sock and now have a pair to send off to my friend in Colorado! They won’t be sent off till we get back from Florida, though. I promise pics by the end of the month!!
Since I finished her socks, I immediately cast on for a pair of generic cuff-down socks for myself using my freshly dyed sock yarn. I’ve been chomping at the bit to see whether I achieved any sort of striping effect at all. I did!!
The color is a bit washed out and the stripes are much too short in sequence, but I knew this would be a learning experience! Next run, I’ll be following Eunny Jang’s tutorial to the T. I haven’t decided what colors I want to try on my next attempt, but I’m sure it’ll be fun. It’ll probably be a while, too. I’ve amassed a decent amount of nice sock yarns and I want to knit my way through some of them before dyeing anymore. Maybe. :-) Overall, I’m very pleased with my first attempt and am anxious to finish the pair to see how they look together–will I have fraternal twins or identical? Only time will tell.
I also sewed up another little bag, and this one I like a lot more than the first. I even went to the trouble of putting a real drawstring cord in it and everything.
It’s not my best photo, I know. It’s so flippin’ humid here that unless I have 30 minutes to sit outside and wait for my camera’s lens to acclimate, I’m stuck with foggy photos. Ick. My dad said it best when he came out a few years back… “It’s like trying to breathe through wet cheesecloth… Sheesh!”
Have a great weekend coming up and I’ll make every effort to post while away… We ought to have some funny stories about the trip!
