FatCatKnits sock blank socks

If I remember correctly I've shown you sock blank socks # 1 already. I had five of them, and today I will just sum it up. I enjoyed knitting them all. My sock blanks were single thread, not like most, which or double stranded, so that the socks will turn out exactly the same. Mine are similar, and I think Ginny did a great job dyeing them. Here we go:

# 5 is my least favorite, but the yarn (Merino) is wonderful. I wash them in the washing machine, and even put them in the dryer sometimes. I love wearing them. I gave a pair away as a gift too. It was fun, and now I'm back to knitting regular socks with wonderful sock yarn from my stash. So much to choose from ....

I love them all. The girls and I made ours yesterday, we can't wait to knit them up.

Those are incredible! Number 2 and 4 are my favorites. This really makes me want to try out some koolaid dyeing on some sock blanks. It's amazing how they turn out after looking at the fabric.

it's really interesting how the colors translate from blank to sock. i think #3 blank was my least favorite but made my most favored pair of socks.

So lovely!! Number 4 is my favourite. You always have such wonderful things to share!

Just when I start to think I may know knitting a little, you show off your latest project and I realize I have so much more to learn!

Off to spend some time learning about sock blanks....

I never really like the look of sock blanks but they look great knit up!

CC said...

Is there a pattern for #4 socks or did you just do garter and stockinette stripes. Looks like 4 rows of garter (2 garter ridges?)

I'm amazed at the finished socks versus the dyed blanks. They're all wonderful.
