My First Sock Blank

I’m dyeing my first sock blank today. It’s soaking in a water and vinegar solution right now and the plan is to dye wide stripes with food coloring. Once it’s dyed and dried, I can knit right from the blank or wind it in a ball and knit. Also, this is a double blank which means the socks will be identical. Although I really don’t mind my socks not being matchy, matchy. I actually like when they knit up differently. Let’s see what I get. img_0641-1img_0678Wish me luck!
