Last night, we got together for the unveiling (or unraveling) of our handpainted sock yarn. Overall, I think the results were pretty spectacular. "Not Really Orange" came out a nice bright yellow.
The surprise of the day was the "mop up" skein. One skein got a bit messed up during soaking and instead of playing around, trying to sort it out, we used it to mop up extra (and spilt) dyes. The overall colour came out golden rust with bits of blue.
I'm so tempted to start knitting this right away but I wanted to finish the toe-up Poms first, then the second Elfine sock...
