Filed Under (Dyeing, Knitting, Socks) by jennyk on 16-11-2006

I decided to try some long-repeat dyeing for socks for a friend, and here it is ….


Bright, isn’t it?   Not my colours but I hope she will like it.

In case someone is curious as to how I did it, I wound the yarn into a long skein on my warping board (5 yard path, so 10 yard repeat), then dip dyed it.  Here is a picture of it in the first colour bath …

Fantastic colours! I think this dyeing repeat came out really well.

I love my yarn…can’t wait to try knitting with it! Will have to wait until I’m done with another project though! :)
