Dyeing Sock Yarn
I've finished the pink socks! They are bright to say the least. I'm quite happy with them. Those socks will be the perfect accessory for a miserable, grey, stormy winter day. Taking pictures of one's own sock clad feet is still an art I need to perfect.
There are two more really long skeins, waiting to be wound into regular skeins. Tomorrow I'm hoping to dye up some roving to sell as well. I had to run into town today to pick up a new scale as mine has decided to bite the dust. Considering it was about 10 years old and a well used little kitchen scale, I don't feel too badly about it's foray into retirement. I'm thrilled that my new little scale is simpler to use, seems more accurate and was less than half the price of my original one. Now maybe I can get some soap made too.
