Gradient dyed yarn, partially knitted up.

I'd apologize for the itouch photos, but that's what happens when you're still knitting the socks on Christmas Day. If I hadn't spent two hours in the car, I wouldn't have had them done on time. I detest gifting non-blocked socks, and I had to in this instance. Luckily, they were for my grandma who would appreciate them no matter what! I was also in luck that she prefers short socks. My issue now is that I have two balls of white with little bits of blue leftover. I may overdye green with the same method and make myself short socks.

The yarn is very pretty knitted up. From a distance it looks like a Monet. I'd really like to try this with a non-white based yarn. Just think, start with orange and dye black for Giants socks!
