The very first hand dyed sock yarns. :D

Remember the white sock yarns I recently ordered? Well, it so happened that I had to get started immediately and so I mixed up some pretty colours in one of my favourite colour ranges: rainbow. :D
I started with 4 skeins, as I didn't want to mess up too many at once, but they turned out just perfectly! I greedily grabbed the least perfect one and started knitting the toe-up sock pattern 'brainless'. So far the yarn is knitting up in small stripes, which I love. One skein is also available in my shop and hopefully many more will soon be joining it. In an attempt to update my ravelry page I added this style there as well under my yarn category, but there is so much more to be done over there yet... I'd rather be knitting this sock, lol.
