Tuesdays Are For Tigers

You know the tiger sock yarn I dyed last week?!



Well, Anna was nice enough to knit it up for me! I didn't think it was going to come out this cool! I really wanted wider stripes and will probably change a few things for the next batch, but overall I am happy with it! More important, Anna likes it! Also, thanks Anna for the pictures :) Now, its watermelon time....

Very cool! I'm tempted to try it too. My brother would get a kick out of tiger socks.

Dani, it looks fabulous! Way to go! Wow. Now if you can figure out a way to keep this enjoyable and mass produce them you could quit your job and make a killing!

Fabulous tiger socks! They're GRRREAT! Sorry, couldn't resist... ;-) The yarn came out quite well...nicely done. Can't wait for your skirt to get to the fun wavy part...I think it's going to come out quite well.

Wow those are awesome!! I was thinking about taking a weaving class....wonder how I would fare seeing as I do not know how to knit :D. Methinks it would be fun, and something I can incorporate into my other artwork. Keep up the good work, you have officially been bookmarked as one of my favorites!
