Sock Blank Dye Workshop $45
What are Sock Blanks? A sock blank is a knitted piece of fabric that is ready to dye in a random or specific pattern. Sock blanks can be single or double knit. Both blanks have enough yarn to knit a pair of socks, but you don't have to knit socks. Any pattern that calls one skein of a fingering weight yarn is suitable for a sock blank. What's the difference between the single or double knit blank. The single knit blank is knit with one strand of yarn. When you dye the blank and knit up the two socks, the colors will match but the pattern may not. The single blanks work great dyed up for gradient colored shawls. The double knit is knit with two strands of yarn. When you dye the double knit blank, you will have 2 balls of yarn dyed exactly the same. This is for the knitter who wants those socks to match. During this workshop you will dye a sock blank of your choice. All dyes & materials will be provided.
