Toe Up!

If my Technical Tuesday post wasn’t enough of a hint; I’ve been studiously working on socks from the toe up. I’ve actually started two pairs! One for Paul and one that was a dye experiment!

First up I’ll show you Paul’s socks. This is the Manos del Uruguay Alegría yarn. I am not 100% sure on the colour, but I have linked to it on the Ravelry project page! The yarn itself is really knitting up in an interesting way. Everyone I have shown has asked if it is self striping yarn, but I’ve just hit that magic number of gauge when the yarn takes its own patterning and runs with it!

The second pair of socks was actually a dye experiment for self-striping socks. I think I have figured out how to do it and I was just playing around with colours. Seeing what lengths to dye for what kind of block of colour. I think they look kind of cool though!

At the very least they are definitely bright in true Stitch Please fashion!!
