My first attempt at dying sock yarn.
Ok. I got this idea today that even though I feel miserable I wanted to dye my sock yarn. The urge was just driving me I did IT! :cheering:

I used the sock yarn I received last summer during the summer swap and koolaid which was also included from my swap partner.

I hope the sections are large enough so the color will be displayed, but either way I'm happy about it. The colors are so bright! I can't wait until it finishs drying so I can see what it looks like wound up!

The pictures are on my blog, I took quite a few and didn't want to "Flood" ya'll here :)


If anyone has any suggestions/improvements please feel free to tell me!!

So did you handpaint each colour section??

I love it, it looks great and reminds me of those bright tie-dyed shirts from the 70's.

I used a spoon actually. Just put it in sections and pressed the spoon down to try to keep it from getting too much dye in one spot!

What fabulous colors! That'll look beautiful in a hank (or, of course, in socks!).
