Colour!

With the very patient help of Dani and Laura at the SnB last night, I managed to wind the (very badly skeined) dyed yarn into these rather nifty-looking balls:

I couldn’t help myself — I just had to see what it looked like knit up, so here’s the beginning of a sock:

Although the colours aren’t perfect in this shot, they’re pretty good — I think it looks like watercolours, and I’m very happy with it. Of course, the colour distribution over the length of the ball is rather different, so I’m likely to end up with a pink foot and blue leg, while the other sock will probably be the reverse. But I am airily unconcerned about such petty details. I just like the colours.

Oh, for the record, taking cutesy pictures of your cat, yourself, and your yarn from armslength while lounging on the bed together is difficult. Evidence here.

They’ll be gorgeous whether they match or not!

Er..Tigger looks like he’s…um…enjoying the photo shoot? :P

I’m sure the socks will be great when they’re done!

Wow. Those are really pretty colors, and I love how they’re knitting up.

Would you mind if I were to tag you for the music meme that’s going around?
