Spidersknit's mama has been a silk painter for a long time, and Ms Spidersknit has been trying to 'splain that the same dyes will do for sock yarn, and sock yarn can be a surprisingly lucrative business. So last night Spiderknit's mama (whose name I never found out, actually) brought her first tries to our S'n'B, where they were snapped up in minutes. Being a half hour late, this was the only yarn left! (Not that I'm at all complaining. It would have been my pick of the bunch anyway). Can you believe this is her first try at dying? No? Well, let's compare it to this esteemed knitter's first try at dying.
Now do you see?
The yarn will become my first pair of socks. Undecided between Monkey and Jaywalkers (look, I might as well go with a winner, seeing as how the other sock I've knitted turned out).
