I knit. Not as an artisan but functionally well enough to make socks and sweaters. Well enough to have written a book about it, but let's forget that, shall we?
I did not dye this yarn although I used to dye most of the fiber I worked with. This is a nice colorway and it's a merino wool with a little bit of nylon for sturdiness. I have used 100% wool and mixes for socks. The mixes do last longer and I'm no fan of darning to fix the heels as they wear through.
As I was searching for a couple hanks of wool I know are somewhere, I found a pair of socks in a lovely wool I did dye some years back. They're finished except I never sewed the ends in. I should wear them but sometimes I feel some things are too pretty to use. I need to get over this bit of dumbness.
