Yarn: Miss Babs Cosmic Hand Painted Base

Colorway: Zombie Prom

Toes and heels: Knit picks fingering Bare-hand dyed by me

I knit these socks top down with an after thought heel.  Then decided that I wanted to try to to a different toe and heel.  The yarn is quite beefy simliar to sock that rocks so know that you sock with be substantial.  Once I finished it was time to dye some yarn for my toes and heels. .

I had purchased a skein of Knitpicks bare for dying toes and heels. Let me just say this yarm is not nearly as beefy is the Miss Babs.  I would 100 yards on the niddy noddy, presoaked my yarn, put it in the pot and got busy.

I still have a few white spots so I added more kool-aid.

It was a perfect match.  I finished up my socks shortly afterwards.  This time I tried to pay close attention to that hole that shows up on the side by your heels too.

All done!  I really enjoyed working on these socks off to the next pair.

Happy knitting
