I’ve tried knitting socks on a few occasions, and I normally end up with a great tangle of wool and needles. Getting those needles aligned, and the cast on stitches not being twisted was always my downfall. So, no socks for me.
Until now! I was seduced into buying this gorgeous sock wool from Bendigo Woollen Mills, and I promised myself I’d give knitting socks a red-hot go.
I’ve frogged four times.
However! I will continue, and promise to show you a picture, once I’m more than 2cm into the sock (because, really, how exciting is that?).. In the meantime, I’ve been dreaming of dyeing my own sock wool (using my food colour method), and I’ve been on the hunt for some colour combinations. After a quick search on Pinterest, I found some really lovely colour pallets from Design Seeds, and one day (after finishing what I have on the needles already) I’d love to try a few of these out!
I wonder how well I’ll go matching food colouring to the ones above.. Might be a little difficult, but I’m all up for experimenting!
