Stripey Number One

Check these out!!! I just finished the first of my socks from yarn I dyed.

Stripey Sock- 1st one

Aren't they cute?!?!?!?!

Stripey Sock- Cuter on

They're even cuter on! I'm giving away my photography secret. 1 breakfast in bed tray with a white background. It's my WT version of a light box.

Stripey Sock- Stripe Sequence

Here's the stripe sequence. Since the yarn was double knit when dyed, the second should come out the same as the first. I hope! I'm going to cast on later today. Thanks for the dyeing lessons, Scout! I love how these are knitting up.

Here's a peek at the latest Yarn Pirate Booty Club shipment. So pretty!!! This might want to be something other than socks...
