FO: Zombie Socks

My zombie socks have been finished for about a month but I finally dug out my camera and took pictures. These are the first socks I've knit that are self-striping from an indie dyer and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. My only issue is that the red bled a bit into the lighter "zombie flesh" stripes and turned them slightly pink in places. It's my own fault for not adding a bit of vinegar, or a color keeper, to the wash since I was pretty sure that bleeding would occur in the wash. I still love them and am waiting for it to cool down enough in Seattle to warrant cashmere blend socks, these things are toasty!

Pattern: improvised
Yarn: Out of Step Dyeworks Self-Striping MCN
Needle: Addi turbo US #1 1/2 32" circular

  1. Those look way cooler knit up than I thought they would when I saw the yarn!! I never thought I'd hear anyone ever say "I'm waiting for it to cool down in Seattle" - that's crazy talk!!
