sock yarn

this is my other gorgeous sock yarn. It is dyed using Jacquard blue, green and violet. I LOVE it. along with the fall tones below I may have to knit myself and my loved ones socks. I really do love these colors and the way this method turns out such gorgeous stuff.

I've been playing with new dyeing methods for yarn...I have happened on an absolutely gorgeous method. I'm not sharing the method yet but I have some amazing results to show! These are both sock yarn. I'm not sure I'll sell either of them. I love them SO much!

This yarn is dyed with jacquard dye. It is done using Salmon, Chestnut brown and Aztec Gold.

I'm participating in this swap...you should too!

TWO down

YAY...two skeins (10.9 ounces) down...a lot to go. The great thing is Marie (the owner of said yarn) sent me an email and said she's happy with the color. Yes. I was worried about that a bit. anyway, just almost half done. Posted by Picasa
