Sock from my own hand-dyed

So, I've finished one side of the anklets that I knit from one of my own hand-dyed. And as you all have expressed the wish to see it knit up, I just can't resist....

...so, here it is:

Started: 30th July 2007
Finished: Half-way on 09th August 2007
Yarn: Regia 4-ply, Hand-dyed by me (75% superwash virgin wool, 25% polyamid; 50 g / 210 m)
Needle: 2.5 mm/100 cm Lang Needles (comparable to Addi Turbos)
Pattern: Universal Toe-up Sock using Magic Cast-On

The colours in the yarn itself vary so greatly...this is even more so pronounced when the sock is knit up. From the right and the left side of the same sock, the colours are just totally different!

The colours are as close as I can get in such bad lighting environment we have today (rain and rain and overcast and grey)...it was with my mad touch-up skillz(TM) that I can get this result. (@ ISO 400, hence the graininess).

Anyway, y'all have a great weekend!
