Platinum Sock Blanks, set of 5

Our Sock Blanks are knit from our popular sock yarn, Platinum Sock. Knit into a long rectangle of one layer (not double knit, that is), our Sock Blank can be dyed or painted in any method to achieve a result unique to your own aesthetic. The blank unravels from one end easily and the knitter can knit directly from the blank. Or, wind a skein or center-pull ball for a more traditional approach. There is a 'right' end and a 'wrong' end where you will begin the unraveling. The 'right' end will unravel smoothly; the 'wrong' end has a lockstitch at both edges.
Please give the blank a nice long bath in very warm water to loosen the knitted fabric.  This is the key to being sure that dye saturates the yarn.
A horizontal dye pattern will yield a wider swath of color to the final knit fabric. Dyed in vertical oriented patterns, or slanted applications of color will give a more varied appearance to the final knit fabric. It is fascinating to discover how to achieve different effects. Self-striping yarn, for instance, can be a simple process with a little bit of math and a lot of enthusiasm. 463 yds/100 gram blank (10"x42" dry, prox) 75% springy superwash merino / 25% nylon
