Help me! I'm Dying!

Well, sock yarn at least. I did two more hanks of the Knit Picks sock yarn. I could see how this could be a problem for some people. You just keep buying the yarn and dying the yarn and not knitting the socks. That could be bad. But don't worry, I have it under control. I can stop anytime I want to. Really.

The purple is the most uneven color I've gotten, at least when I've been trying to get the color fairly even and ironically, the red is probably the most even color I've ever gotten. Of course the red took an entire jar of Wilton's Red Red, so there was certainly enough dye to get a good even color. Again, no clue what sock pattern I'll knit with these, but I'll figure that out when I decide to knit them. I've also joined another Internet Based Group Sock Activity - Sockapaloooza! I've never done it before, but it should be fun.

Love the colors! Your red sock yarn would be good for this: http://countrygirlzine.us/knit/index.php/red-hot-sizzling-socks/ It's a red sock KAL, you should check it out! I'm not joining because I have yet to attempt my first pair of socks, maybe after the Knitting Olympics.....

Your yarn looks beautiful! Wait till you start knitting with it and realize you "created" the color, I'm sure it will be a great feeling.

Beautiful! The purple will look great knitted up because of its unevenness. I love purple.

Beautiful colors. Everyone wants to see it knit up into socks, so you really need to do it! (The Trekking socks a couple of posts ago are going to be lovely. I love Trekking yarn!)
