These are really cool. (No, really.) The colored stripes and moire patterns in these socks are achieved using very precise skeining and dyeing techniques. I’m quite pleased with myself for coming up with the idea, and you should really check out the full-size pictures, which look even more (!) interesting than this photo. Each “stripe”, you see, is actually two different colors…it looks a bit like a pointillist painting. I call them my Monet socks.
This is a pretty trick done with carefully space-dyed (handpainted) yarn. I call them “ikat socks” because they look a bit like ikat (warp-painted) fabric.
