After following the Knitpicks sock blank knit-alongs and dye-alongs I decided to try one myself using dye plants.
Knitpicks sock blank. Starting with an overnight soak and standard Alum bath.
Start with Oxylas. The sock blank soaked up the dye incredibly well. I underestimated the wicking effect and lost the white spots. For the next one it mgiht be interesting to try with some dry areas.
Overdye with Maddar.
Some ‘saddening’ with Iron and Copper to tone down the yellow.
Last the Indigo overdye.
I am a total convert to the Magic Loop method of sock knitting but have never tried two at once or toe up. The pattern is good but I was somewhat confused at the beginning. Once over that hurddle I think the rest will be fairly straight forward.
