My Sockpaloooza socks are finished! Here are the specs:
Pattern: Yukon Leaves
Yarn: Two Waters Fiberworks hand dyed merino sock yarn
Needles: 2 Addi-turbo circulars size 0
This pattern was just challenging enough to be interesting, but not so difficult that I wanted to pull my hair out. I'm sure I'll be knitting it again. I also really like this yarn and would recommend it highly.
Now that these socks are finished, I think I'm going to take a little break from knitting socks. I have everything I need to attempt to dye my own yarn except for the yarn. I ordered some Dye Your Own from KnitPicks last weekend and I really hope it arrives today. I've researched the topic of dyeing one's own yarn with Koolaid rather heavily and I am ready to go! Alison posted an excellent tutorial on the process yesterday and it got me motivated. She has links in her post to other people's tutorials, so I won't be redundant by listing them here. If you're interested, check it out.
