I am naming these socks, which is something of which I don't often do, but it's too hard to describe them otherwise with any grace at all. Thus they are the Handy Socks owing to the fact that they are Handknit, Handspun, and Handdyed. Together, Sue and I dyed the merino roving at the Hot Rainbow Dye class at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival in 2006. Sue spun the wool and I knit the socks. See below some of the other yarn we dyed and Sue spun.
The top yarn is half used up in a pair of wristwarmers. I've earmarked the purply stuff as socks for me. Writing this -----OH MY GOSH! A guy on American Idol is singing Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen and it's really good, although truncated. Too bad that guy got voted off. C'est la vie. Whew!
