Hand-dyed hot pinks for my sister
Completed in April 2013

This undyed sock yarn was purchased from John Arbon at the fabled Unravel knitting festival, held at Farnham Maltings, which is a fun knitting train journey from London. This Unravel knitting festival is held every February, and it's one of my favorites. So much fun to be had, with great classes, free knitting talks, and loads of interesting vendors to browse.

The yarn is superwash merino wool, 2/10s. The spin is quite loose, and with no nylon for reinforcing, I wonder how these socks will wear.

I dyed the wool with my favorite Jacquard brand acid dyes, in fuschia.
