hand dyed sock yarn

Today was spent marking and hombre dyeing the new sock yarn.  Most of it is a 3-ply superwash merino/nylon mix, 410 yards per skein, 8 stitches to the inch, size 3 needles. …as in over 100 skeins all told.  There are 10 skeins of superwash merino that are just a tad finer and a few sample skeins of various merino blends.  There is MUCH more dyeing to come.  MUCH!
