Fruits of my labor

So we dyed the yarn. Here it is. 3 colors, repeated. We don't have a scientific process. Just divide the yarn into 6 sections. Have 3 jars of dye and dip a section into the dye, then on to the next section and next jar of dye. Repeat for all colors and all sections.

And here is the yarn wound into a ball. Definitely a different look.

And then a sock is knit. A nice repeat of the colors. They are so soft and so warm. Now I just have to knit the other one. I use my Passap Duo 80 double bed knitting machine. It takes about 1/2 hour per sock, give or take a few minutes cause I haven't made one since April, so I was a little rusty on the instructions.
