BLUE GRADIENT Sock Blank

Regular price $30.00

If you have never used a sock blank to knit from, you are in for a treat. You get the fun of watching the design and the colors go by in a totally new way as you knit from it.

Oh, and by the way, there's nothing in the world saying you can only make socks from sock blanks. These are single blanks made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon fingering-weight yarn, and you can use them for anything you would use sock-weight yarn for.

Each of my sock blanks is one of a kind.

This sock blank goes from navy blue to violet to a purplish blue to a medium blue and finally to a soft sky blue. I think it would make a wonderful shawl or cowl.

If you decide to make socks out of this one, just keep in mind that the socks will not be the same since the two halves are not the same.

How do you use a sock blank? Some people like to unravel the whole thing at once and then work from a normal ball of yarn. However, I think it's more fun to just unravel it as you go so you can enjoy the color changes and just set the whole thing on your lap. You start at one side and just keep unraveling as you go. The yarn will be curly, but that's okay. It will block out just fine.

PROCESS AND PACKAGING
Each sock blank is hand painted with loving care, washed well, wrapped in tissue paper inside a sturdy box, and shipped promptly. It makes a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite fiber artist--even if that happens to be you!

MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order.  Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
 
Happy fiber artistry!
