free hit counter Knit-Whit: Pretties

I made ankle socks!!! Did you expect anything different? ;-) I could have made these quite a bit taller considering I still have a good size yarn ball left over. Remember, I had split the 440 yd skein in 2...about equal to 2/3 and 1/3. This was the bigger ball of the two.

Pattern: Alison's Ankle Socks
Needles: Size 3 birch DPN
Yarn: Knit Picks Color Your Own Sockyarn
Started: April 18,2006
Finished: April 22, 2006
Adjustments: I knit 2x2 rib for about 13 rows, stockinetter for 3 rows and then started the short-row heel. I knit the toe using the 'star' method from the Embossed Leaves pattern.

I'm warming up for the dye-o-rama swap!!!

Those socks are so cool. I just dyed my first skein with Koolaid and it's kind of ugly, but you've inspired me and I'm going to knit up some little socks anyway.

That turned out so cool! You know I love ankle socks! What are going to do with the rest of the yarn? You could maybe get another pair of ankle socks out of them or make a felted purse. I have some really bright Kool-Aid blue dyed Patons Classic Merino yarn. Can I re-dyed yarn that is too bright and if so, what color do I use on top of this berry bright blue! I could email the pic. What to knit with mine....I have no idea.
