I love these crazy socks! I dyed the fiber and spun the yarn well over a year ago and just now got it knit into socks. I used angora, mohair, wool, tencel, and alpaca and dyed it a rainbow of colors all in one dyepot, then randomly spun it.

it's cold; frankly, the weather just sucks. We are having high temps in the single digits (Gross!) and windchills as low as 30 below (double gross!). I felt really sorry for myself about this, until I talked to my friend Cheryl in Minnesota, where the ACTUAL temperature was negative 31 degrees F. So, I shouldn't complain, right?

I'm taking advantage of this cold, indoors-only weather to play with the dyepot, and list a few things on etsy. I love, love, LOVE these botanically dyed silk handerchiefs as tarot card wraps, they are just perfect!
