Hand Knit Socks Made From My Hand Dyed Yarn

I dyed several skeins of sock (fingering) weight yarn last year. I knit a scarf using some of the yarn I dyed that you can see here. I just finished knitting these pair of socks. They came out great and I love how they feel and fit. I knit the cuff first and then I added a nylon thread along with the yarn and held them together to knit the heel to the toe. The nylon gives added strength to the sock yarn in those places that might eventually get holes. I used a gray nylon thread so it makes the rest of the foot look kind of heather looking.
The entire foot is knit with the added gray nylon held together with the yarn. The foot looks a bit lighter because of the addition of the gray thread. At least it does to me in person, lol!!!
I knit the cuff with the yarn I hand dyed. It's a rib knit of knit 2, purl 2.

  1. Hi Daryl, Learning to knit socks is on my bucket list -- but I just don't seem to have the time. I should make it a new year's resolution! Nice job! They do look so comfy.. Jackie

  2. Your hand dyed yarn and resulting hand knit socks are beautiful. I must be the only person who is not knitting socks this year. Warm Toes for Winter...

  4. I love these socks and the colors are even more vivid in person. your dye job is incredible, I hope you have some nice shoes that show them off. Handmade socks are why I wear sandals in the winter.

  6. Wow. Love the socks. I've never worn socks someone knitted except the booties you wear to keep your feet warm and they obviously to heavy to wear with shoes.
