WIP Wednesday: Again With The Socks

I have made a wee bit more progress on the socks. They’re coming along just fine, but very slowly. Not knitting makes them moved along at an even slower pace, obviously. The pattern is my standard 64sts on size 1.5 needles. The yarn is a Knit Picks bare sock blank that was gifted to me eons ago by Beth. I dyed it with grape KoolAid in my crockpot. Then I wound it into two balls since knitting from the flat annoys me. Marilyn: There is a tiny hint of grape smell when you sniff the yarn up close. I am curious to see if when I wash them the smell becomes stronger or goes away completely.

    Cool. Thanks! I thought they would be super strong smelling…or a combination between wooliness and grape.
    I like how the yarn is both heathered and striped!

    Love the yarn color. I think I’d like the faint smell of grape. πŸ™‚

    Ooh! I live seeing this colorway. I didn’t know you had dyed it with grape Kool Aid. I have a skein of bare fingering yarn. I must try that.

    Tell me about slowly growing socks! πŸ˜‰ I have the same problem right now … But the colour is beautiful! I’ll be knitting vanilla socks for me again, too – can’t wait! πŸ˜€
