So Neat

Sometimes in the run of a day, one wishes that they could share things with others.  Sometimes it is good news you share with your family, sometimes it is work related that you share with co-workers.  Today, however, I wish to share something knitting related and I have no one around who would appreciate this news! So I am going to share with you.

If you like dyeing your own yarn, like I do, you will find this news of absolutely wonderful significance.  KnitPicks has come up with a way to dye your sock yarns so each foot comes out the same!  Check this out:

Now if that isn’t innovative, I don’t know what is!  And the price is so right!

My first thought was, hey, I could do that, but the knitting up would be too long and boring! Then I thought, any one with a knitting machine could whip up their own blanks and do this.  I realized, however, at least here in Nova Scotia, the sock yarns would be more expensive than the blanks sold by KnitPicks! Oh well, I guess I’m going to have to get me some!

Yay for KnitPicks!
