Thank you, high praise indeed coming from the original creator! I considered dying sock monkey socks like you did but just could not be troubled to run around town finding dye and then making my hands green with it, lol.
you're quite welcome!
i don't think dyeing one's hands would be a requisite when dyeing the socks... i just always find a way to dye my hands funny colors. the important lesson i learned is to not wear the plastic gloves that come with the dye. i had a whole box of latex gloves... somewhere. just couldn't find them when i needed them.
