I’m a very lucky girl, I have three great sisters-in-laws, and by some fluke of nature they are all some form of teacher. Contributing to the
delinquency of minors future generations of society one sister-in-law at a time ;). Haha, I kid, I kid. One teaches adults. 😉
Ok ok, in reality though, when September hit and everyone went back to school, and I got into my dyeing, I couldn’t help but come up with something school related. School supplies were everywhere, which I tried to use as inspiration instead of just a drain on my bank account! A pencil colourway just seemed natural. Two kids in school and all these educators surrounding me I didn’t have much else on my mind!
Begin the dyeing….
I started with that, and let me tell you, no. 2 yellow isn’t easy! It’s this yellow with muted orange undertones and I
need like to get things right. My husband was conscripted to sit with a fist full of pencils and an armful of yarn and I just kept dipping till I got it right.
It didn’t end there though. After my first few pencil sales, the idea of the cuff came up. Was it possible to, perhaps, have an eraser end? Umm, hell yah!
Total icing on the cake! A bit of dyeing later, and I’m very pleased with these bad boyz.
So now one sock down, and 5 more to go so I can be sure my SILs are properly attired whilst they shape minds!
You know you want a pair 😉
(That’s the fish lips kiss heel that is ah-mazing!)
