Everyone's A Critic
Anubis D Cat inspects my work on the Wyoming Spring Socks. His whole stance suggests disdain, from the dyeing to the design to the knitting. Despite his withering disapproval, I forged ahead and finished the socks. They are a gift, and will soon be in New Zealand with Elaine, who gets to vacation there for three weeks. The other reason the socks are green? I'm jealous. I want to go to New Zealand with them. :(
Yes, they look huge, but they aren't really, they're just on sock blockers, stretching out after a final wash. Interesting striping, I'm never sure how some of the dye jobs will look on a finished product, the color variations here are much more subtle than the picture shows. 3 shades of green, and two of brown. Of course, everything looks good in a skein.
I've dyed my colorways of Wyoming Spring, Summer, Autumn, and all I have left to do is a Winter colorway. Could turn out slush gray, scoria red, and traffic cone orange at this rate...
