I made some pretty little yarn cakes:
This is the Jacob Sheep Wool, 2-ply worsted weight from Stoney Acre Farm. I bought this at a tiny fiber arts festival in Sherborn, MA, last fall. It was originally a cream color.
The colors I used were leftover cherry and grape Kool-Aid from the sock yarn that I had just dyed, which is shown below.
Here it is! Le Sock Yarn. It's KnitPicks' Bare, and I used grape, cherry and berry blue Kool-Aid to dye it. Except I dyed it really messy and the colors got mostly blended together. I was disappointed, but now that I have seen it knit up, I like it.
I like the little touches of blue here and there. ZMrK loves this, but he doesn't think I should make HIM socks out of it. Feh. So it looks as though I'll just have to make myself yet another pair of socks! Does anyone know a good pattern for subtly variegated sock yarn?
