The sock drama continues!
Completed in December 2013


This crazy pair represents the 92nd pair in the ever-growing sock wardrobe.

I hand dyed this sock yarn myself, with my favorite Jacquard brand acid dyes.

In the top photo, the natural hank is freshly dyed with a vibrant pink fuschia.

But, after I hand-washed the finished socks in a warm soapy bath, the black color ran into the pink and unfortunately subdued the pink hue.

Beware of dyeing with black dye as the color seems to run the most, despite my pouring in extra vinegar to set the dye.

The last photo above was taken with me and my sock during a battlefield tour of Waterloo, Belgium, as you do.
