knitting bullshit and other random shit

Hi. I just found you through your Rosalie hat, which a friend of mine had favorited. Nice to see a knitter on LJ where it's easy to friend!

I had the same experience with the sock blanks, except I was trying to knit right from my dip-dyed blank (didn't skein it first). I ended up overdyeing the finished socks in the same burgundy dye, so the gradations of color are gone, but at least it doesn't look leprous anymore. It did surprise and please me that after two hot water dyes the yarn was in good shape, hadn't shrunk my sock, and was really really soft. Much nicer yarn than I expect from a KnitPicks price point, but in the future I'd just buy Stroll and skip the blank.
