The Second

Second sock is turning into an explosion of orange and black confetti. This is what I hoped would happen. I didn't want the socks to have tiger stripes so I purposely didn't soak the blank before adding the dye. That kept the color from soaking through the blank and dyeing all the natural colored wool.

The inside is is pretty much dye free which makes spots on one side of each strand of wool. The verdict is out on whether I am going to like these when they are done but for now it is fun watching patterns emerge from the spots.
