Transformation

Remember this skein, from the wool dyeing tutorial? It's pretty bright, with the lime green, mid-green, turquoise and gold combination. I think I called it rather garish at the time.
Now here it is, in combination with another hand-dyed skein in blues, rapidly becoming a sock. Looks different now, doesn't it? This is so much fun to knit that I may even get to finish BOTH socks this time! Posted by Picasa

Shirley, it's certainly more subtle than I would have expected. Very pretty!

Very nice. Are the patterns random, caused by the dyes or are you following some sort of pattern?

This is a Fair Isle pattern, designed to be made with 2 different random dyes.

That's gorgeous! I'd wear those socks in a heart beat...it'd make a nice hat, too :-)

It's knitting up nicely amongst the blues!

I have found that re-skeining yarn after dyeing gets rid of the "in your face" blocks of color AND gives a lovely mix of shades and colors. So if you don't get it knitted up right away, it is SO pretty to look at!
