Disturbingly 80's, but I did it myself
Behold the self-patterning sock yarn I dyed (my first time) at Knit Michigan this past Saturday. I was going for a "watermelon" feel (pink and green, with black Fair Isle "seeds") but in actuality the colors turned out VERY neon, and the Fair Isle patches are a bit longer than they should be, resulting in a diagonal stripes thing in that section. The pink and green parts, though, did work out into surprisingly even stripes- I can get around 1, 2, or 3 times (depending) with little to no stitches left over at the end. Giving their blinding appearance, they'll be Emma socks- nothing's too wild for her.
OH, speaking of socks, if you got the new Patternworks catalog, check out pg. 13. The ankle socks pattern they are offering for SWTC Tofutsies is one of mine!
