after applying acid (vinegar) dye by sponge to the sock block of double knit wool- it is rolled in an impermeable barrier (to prevent colour mixing) and steamed for 40 minutes to set dye...
before I knit up a pair of socks we hand-dye the sock blank...
it is bright and impressive now- I'll put the sock picture up too
Shame they don't do it this way anymore...
For Boxer lovers everywhere - This is our girl, Ginnie
Our extended family has a custom of getting together the week after Christmas.
This was my second pair of socks I ever made.
Mitten and scarf. Lion brand wool.
This is one of my Favorite Patterns :) this was actually the first one I did of it's kind. I decided to Gift it to my Sister in law for her graduation.
