SOCKS IN PROGRESS

These are a pair. The darker sock should end the same colour as the orange and the orange should end as the dark one has begun. I dyed this myself using blanks but dyed in a different way to my last attempt. Not sure exactly how these will turn out. I am not anal about my socks and do not care if they match. The yarn is 75% sw merino 25% nylon. 420m/100g


The pair below, Tramlines, are again dyed by me. The yarn is 64% merino and 34% sw merino, 400m/100g. The % is what causes the tweed affect as sw takes up dye quickly and deeply. Knitted with 2.5mm Chiao Goo, 60cm length.
