My first hand dyed sock yarn! Look
Sooo..here it is and I am so happy with the way it turned outLook at the yummy goodness..I think the colors came out so vibrant and blended nicely. I haven't decided if I want to keep this or venture into selling it on etsy. ( I'm not sure my yarn is good enough to sell) It is 400 yards of BFL superwash wool/fingering weight yarn. So so you like it?!

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

I'm never nice

Why not knit up a few rounds of k2 p2 and see how it looks??

i recently sold some on etsy ($15) it was sock yarn ... for me, it just depends on how difficult (time intensive) your particular dye job is, and the yardage you are selling HTH
(i really like the colors, btw) I got my package today!! Thanks
