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.

I have added my own unique take on these sock blank by dyeing the stripes first and then stenciling on patterns and/or words on the top with thickened dyes. Of course, the readable pattern becomes lost as you knit the blank but the knitter will always know. :>)

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 Sock blanks listed on my site. :>)
