Today I finished the pair of socks that I made from the sock blank that I recently dyed. This is the first pair of socks that I have knit. It was fun and a little bit addicting.
Dyed Sock blank - 2 ply
I wasn't sure what to expect from my circles and lines. I like the outcome. The "black" lifted in the rinse to a dark green. I am feeling the need to go through the process several more times in order to understand the cause and effect. I also had two small balls of thread left from the process. I am wondering if it might make a small head band. ....just thinking at this point. :^)
First pair of hand knit socks Hurrah!
But I think that will need to hold off with further knitting projects for another month. It is outside project time and I have a few inside painting jobs that I want to finish while I can still open the windows.
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
