Yarn, dyed fiber, a couple bracelets, and a set of stitch markers.

Sock I'm knitting from yarn I dyed.  I'm so in love with this sock!


More yarns, you can see the one I'm knitting the sock from in this photo, too.


The red one is for my mom's Mother's day gift.  Red is her favorite color.  Bracelets are Czech glass beads with some metal beads mixed in, and the red one has coral or jasper chips.  I forget which...


Jupiter Crash.  SOFFFT handspun Falkland wool single.


Peacock Strut.  Handspun 2 ply domestic wool.

Your yarn with the blue and brown colorway makes my mouth water.

Midnightsky, I think it looks like that because of the slipped stitches on the heel.  Any striped yarn would do that.  Right?

Midnightsky, thank you!  I thought about working the whole bottom of the sock with that stitch, but it's really firm and non-stretchy, so I decided to be lazy and just do stockinette!

Lemonade:  I think just about any space dyed yarn would do that fairisle looking thing with the slip stitch pattern.  I just used a regular heel stitch--sl 1, k1 across and then sl 1, p1 on the back side.  This yarn does have fairly long color repeats, so it's making partial stripes on the sock.  I'm liking the fun of stripes with the unexpectedness of them being a little bit random.

Oh wow. The turquoise and brown colorway. Is. Effing. Amazing!

I ADORE that color combination.

And now you've made me want to knit socks.

yes ussually depending on the stipe pattern...longer stripes dont give the effect as nicely though.
