Organic hand dyed socks

The socks are finished! There was a slight panic near the end of the first one, as I wasn’t sure that I would have enough wool; but a bit of technical weighing on my digital scales of sock and ball, confirmed that I did.
The new project has started – but needs to remain secret…… for now anyway.

Organic merino hand dyed socks

My alpaca slipover is nearly finished and I wound my organic merino sock wool yesterday. It was dyed using logwood and the organic walnuts I gathered at Montbreton. G dropped a hint that he fancied a pair of socks in it – and a little start has been made. This morning was the first day I have been out since our big chill started, but the wool parcels have to go! it is bright and sunny, but it was -5C when we got up.
