Sock Dyeing Experiment





A little sock dyeing goes a long way. After perusing the Internet, I discovered some sites to help me make some striped sock yarn. It's a bit bright. The blue color you see is not accurate. It's really a teal color. Thanks, DD, for buying me some sock yarn to dye as a holiday gift. I used the Ringwood pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks to break up the monotony of the stripes.

Knitty. com has a wonderful sock made from koolaid dyeing . Check out the tutorial there as well.

Cindy the yarn came out beautiful. Did you use kool-aide? I love the intense colors

Very clever - I like the canning jar roulette. I've dyed in them but one item per jar. That's such a great idea and since I still have pounds of undyed sock yarn that I bought when Robbin and Russ were still around....
