This was a first for me. I spent a lovely afternoon with my knitting friends, in the company of a yarn dying expert, who taught us to hand dye “sock blanks”. What are sock blanks? They are rectangular machine knit superwash merino and nylon sock weight yarn blank in natural white. This one is knit with two strands together to produce for two skeins of identically dyed yarn. So the socks will match. Magic!
The Best Sock Pattern EVER.

I have just finished spinning this lovely sport weight hand dyed yarn. It is spun from 70% blue flaced leichester, and 30% silk, custom dyed roving, and was sold at an equally lovely shop in NE Ohio, by the name of Long Tail Knits. Please stop by and say hi to the gang there!
