I did try dyeing self striping yarn and it came out great! I followed the directions fron this site and it came out perfect.

I love her site. She is just too good. I can't wait until she publishes the pattern for her argyle socks. They're just great.

Dyeing the yarn was the easy part, the hard part was winding the skein and measuring everything out. I only dyed a small amount to get the hang of it.











































Here's the Embossed Leaves socks from IK winter issue. I used Koigu KPPPM color P404 20. I did 1 full repeat instead of 3 before starting the heel and completed the sock as written.













While I was at my brother's a week ago, I saw this across the street. Yup, a dog on the roof. He was barking at all the cars going by.

When I lived in Mexico I had to get used to dogs that lived on the roof. That is truly something to fear that your head is going to be attacked by a dog when you walk by. Smile.
Those embossed leaves socks look great!
Knit on!

The colors on the self striping yarn are great. :) Very bright and red. The yarn I used for the baby blanket is Fantasy Naturale in colorway 9936. I got it from a shop called Woolstock in Maryland, but they have a website too. www.woolstock.com

Nice job on the socks too, I need to finish mine sometime this decade.

To answer your question, yes I can include a pattern if I ever finish it. I've accidentally deleted the color chart I made on the PC.. :p I can re-create it though.
