"Watermelon" is stenciled to look like a slice of watermelon. I have stenciled black seed shapes on the pink and dark green stripes over the two green tones.Before you ask, THIS WILL NOT KNIT UP EXACTLY LIKE IT IS STENCILED. The stenciled marks will just become dots of color as you unravel the blank and knit up your socks. But even then, it still looks like a watermelon!

I will dye this up this week and it will ship on June 14,2019

SINGLE STRANDED SOCK YARN BLANK
Content - 75% superwash merino 25% nylon
Weight - 100 grams (3.5 oz)
Yardage -423 meters (463 yards)

WHAT THE HECK IS A SOCK BLANK?
Basically, a sock blank is a skein of white, undyed yarn that has been machine knitted into a 10 by 42 inch rectangle for the dyer (me). This makes dyeing long sections of the yarn possible without using a warping board. Each long stripe dyed on the knitted material correlates to a long length of dyed yarn when it is unwound.

When you go to knit with it, simply unravel the blank from the right end (the wrong end will lock stitch on the sides) and cast on. There will be a little kink but it isn’t too bad while you are knitting and will disappear when you block the sock.

PLEASE BE AWARE that you can only knit one sock at a time and the socks will probably not match up in the color placement so if you are a “Matchy-Matchy” sock type knitter, this might throw you off. You will have better luck matching two socks if you buy one of the Double Secret Sock blanks listed on my site. :>)
