Kool-Aid Hand Dyed/Spun Socks

First I picked up a Romney/Rambo X fleece from Mary Pratt in Rheinbeck, NY Sheep & Wool festival. She has the most absolutely beautiful fleeces...One can never go wrong with any of her fleeces for sure....Looking forward to getting mroe from her in the future. Washed, combed & dyed clumps with several different colors of kool-aid. Then combed and spun a little of this color and a little of that color and kept switching colors then navayo plied. I knitted toe-up into ankles socks...going to use them for a demo on a workshop I'm doing next month.. then I'm going to summit them to one of the state fairs in a few months

Love the socks - especially since you dyed and spun the yarn yourself. That's going above and beyond, in my book! Good luck at the fair.
