Blankety-blanks

A few weeks ago I was dyeing up some sock blanks, just a bit of fun to test out sizes etc. But of course the proof of the pudding is in the eating, well knitting in this case, so I've been on tenterhooks to see how my little experiments turned out. Enter the lovely Julia who presented me with not one, but three knitted up blanks this week : ))) Big smiles all round : )))

The effects were really interesting. With uncharacteristic forward thinking I had taken pics of the dyed blanks before they were knitted so it was great to be able to compare how the painting effects translated into the knitting.

So inspired were we that phase two is now underway.....
