My afterthought heel socks are done! I used my vertical striped sock blank for these..not sure I’m loving the color pooling but it’s definitely different!

Making progress with my food color dyed sock blank socks! I’m going to attempt an afterthought heel and am already getting nervous at the thought of cutting my knitting 😬

Super excited to see how this sock blank knits up! I’ve never used one before and have no idea what the color pooling will look like with this vertical pattern 😬

Here it is! If it looks yummy enough to eat it’s because it almost is! Dyed using lemon juice, food coloring and cake sprinkles. Thanks @chemknits for the awesome tutorial 😊

These days I spend a lot of time nursing my little on the couch, which means I’ve been banking a lot of YouTube hours. Some of my favorite videos have been by @chemknits. She comes up with some seriously crazy and cool ways to dye yarn. I decided to try out her method for dyeing with sprinkles..and it worked! My yarn is drying now, but it looks awesome! I can’t wait to share the pictures of it dry and skeined 😁

A cardigan and sock set for my little Jane made up with my hand painted yarn. Working on writing up the pattern for the shrug. It will be available in baby and toddler sizes 😁

Working on a new design for a baby/toddler sized cropped cardigan. I’m so excited to be using my yarn I dyed at @allisonbarnesyarn β€˜s handpainting class! I also realized that Jane’s crib sheets make the best backdrop for my knitting photos πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ .
