The finished product

With the acrylic waste yarn removed--the waste yarn helps keep the dye from spreading, creating more distinct stripes--these

look like this.


Sort of. I'm color correction challenged, but they're close enough. The pair on the left is for my secret pal. 100gm of Louet Gems Pearl that can be knit straight from the fabric.

The other 2 are for me I suppose. The pair on the far right is Louet Gems also, but there's a knot in one of them. Plus they're not as purple as they appear, they have more of a magenta hue. The middle pair is Interlacements Tiny Toes which is thinner than the Gems and has a tighter twist.

  • Ok, sorry if this is a dumb question -- is there a reason to reknit it, or is it just a presentation thing? I suppose it could help you see what's coming next and all, but if you leave it sitting around for too long, won't you end up with kinks in your yarn?
