‘Sunflowers’ and ‘Seascape’ New sock blanks added to etsy shop!

Always popular these unique sock blanks will produce a pair of picture socks, as you unravel so the picture appears! Quite magical.
The first one is based on a photograph of sunflowers in Italy, taken by my old mate Maureen. The second is an impression of a seascape.
These sock blanks can take up to 2 1/2 hours to paint but are really amazing. Why be satisfied with stripey socks when you can have picture socks?

Simply unravel-latest dyed sock blank

Over the weekend I managed to get quite a lot of dyeing done and was very pleased with how this sock blank turned out. Reminds me of ladybirds and santa’s boots. Simply unravel and knit!

Scarf sock yarn-now in etsy shop

After trialing my very first scarf sock yarn I am now pleased to announce that they are being added to my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/knitwitoriginalsuk
I love how the pink spotty one turned out, it took ages to do but I think it will look fabulous knitted up into a pair of funky socks. The second one still has to dry, another experiment-it is also funky for the brave of feet, some pink in it as I needed to use up the exhaust from previous one but with added blue. Rather than knitting from a ball of yarn you unravel the ‘scarf’ as you knit, it doesn’t roll away and you can wear it as you knit! great fun!
