Punk Rock Sock Club - Installment 1- THE CLASH

Colorway: The Clash
Yarn: Lotus Knits

I'm so happy with this months sock club yarn! Melanie did it again with the rockin' yarn and theme.
I was looking for some sock yarn for G and I think this is it. He likes the colors and The Clash are one of his fave bands as well as mine. In the background you'll notice a thing called a vinyl record album. This is how we listened to music back in the olden days (and sometimes still do).

Last Friday I spent the day with my friend M dyeing some yarn. We soaked, we mixed, we poured, we microwaved. This is one of the hanks of wool and silk my husband has appropriately named Frankenskein. This was my first attempt at dyeing and I see more in the near future. I now have even more respect for hand dyers, since it took me the whole afternoon to color up two hanks of yarn.
