Jaywalker socks

Pattern : Jaywalker by Grumperina for Magknits
Yarn: 4 balls of Merino Bambino that I dyed myself
Ravelry link here

I am so pleased with these socks! so pleased in fact, that i am entering them into the Mount Gambier show. I am really surprised that the yarn striped as well as it did. I would like to do some more yarn dyeing in the holidays perhaps, but this time I think I might use acid dyes.
I haven't mentioned it yet, but I am on ravelry! I have been for months now. I just haven't got around to telling. If you would like to 'friend me' my username is beckydee.

oh, and I have been buying lots of buttons.............

They are just FAB! I cant believe all the effort you went to to make self stripping yarn! well done - if they dont win first prize at the show well I will be very surprised!!

Those stripes are perfection, what's the secret? Been meaning to do some Jaywalkers myself.
