Spring Forward Socks

I started some Spring Forward socks a few weeks ago, but forgot to post them. I am using the yarn I dyed and am really happy with how they are knitting up.
That is all my craft news. I'm trying to be positive that my sneezing doesn't mean I am catching the cold the girls' have and hopefully I can get some sewing done this weekend.

They look gorgeous Kate - the perfect project to showcase precious hand dyed.

Louise said...

Wow. I love how that yarn is knitting up. Did you use "proper" wool dyes or something else to dye the wool? The colours have come out really well.

hope the sniffles pass you by! what great colours in that yarn, i so wish i could knit:)

That's a wonderful colour combination, I am really drawn to the combination of pinks reds and greens at the moment - really fresh and interesting. I love the pattern it is making in your socks. Your dyeing efforts encouraged me to have a little dabble with some food colouring - lots of fun!

Fingers crossed that the cold passes you by - I'm just recovering from mine.
