Purple/Blue/Yellow Handpaint


I dyed the yarn for these when I was home on vacation in June. I brought home two skeins of KP Bare and Mom did one and I did one. It was great fun. I redid the skein so I could have nice long stretches of color, nothing measured, just longer than normal! I have dyed this yarn before, but I hadn't knit any of it up yet. It takes the dye beautifully.

It's a tad scratchier than the merino KP Bare, but it isn't merino so that's to be expected! They feel good on my feet though and I've definitely knitted with scratchier! They're my standard toe-up formula, I did 1x1 twisted rib on the cuff instead of my normal 2x2 though. The Monkey socks use the twisted rib and I like the way it looks so I figured I'd use that.

And now I don't have any socks OTN so I need to go cast something on!
