Tracy’s ColorJoy Socks

Monday, July 9th, 2007

starsongkytracyvictorianlace.jpgTracy has been a friend to me and to my designing, for a few years now. She has tested patterns for me and she stays in touch through the internet.

Now she writes that she finished some “Victorian Lace Socks” from yarn I dyed. Yellow with small greenish biits, randomly applied.

Tracy’s yarn is related to the yellow-with-melon-bits yarn that Irene B. Knit (I showed that photo in a post about the East Lansing Art Festival back in May).

I have never dyed yarn like this since, but I made three yellow-with-bits skeins, I think it was about a year ago. I was playing with the idea of yellow, thanks to the influence of knitting friend Jacque.

Irene said that local knitters who know how I dress, were amazed that I would dye yarn in colors I would not wear. I like color, especially bright color, even if I don’t look good wearing it. That makes sense to me!
