"Many Colors/ Dyed Sock Tubes....."

I have been involved in dyeing more knitted sock tubes. I have a few photos that I wanted to post. Photo #1 is a dyed sock tube prior to unraveling and knitting the pair of socks.

This photo is of the knitted pair of socks, using the above tube. They have not been wet finished yet, and you are able to see the slight "rippling" ,caused by the yarn under tension (?), which will smooth out after washing.

And #3 is a number of dyed tubes waiting to be unraveled and knitted into pairs of socks.

As you can tell, I am enjoying this dyeing/knitting process VERY much. Discovering how the dyed tube pattern creates a different pattern after knitting, is an amazing and enjoyable thing. I hope you feel the wonder of it as well. ;)

Pretty Pretty! The sock machine lady will NOT be there next week. Nor will the honey lady and one of the other spinners so there will be plenty of room if you'd like to join us. This weekend there was a hedge in our room. Doesn't get any better than that!

Michael, love the dyeing you are doing on the sock blanks, and the resulting cranked socks!
