“Anyone who’s ever hand-dyed sock yarn, or knit from a skein of hand-dyed sock yarn, has been bedeviled by pooling colors. Knit Picks has a new product which takes the guesswork out of dyeing sock yarn. Sock Blanks are pre-knit tubes of undyed sock yarn. You dye the pre-knit tube with the stripes that you want, then knit your socks directly off the tube. Somehow this seems like cheating, but in a good way.” Yarn Scoop

“The Knit Picks blank is a double-stranded flat length of knitted material that you can easily hand-dye a striped pattern using acid dyes. You can also do other effects such as this gradated technique which really appeals to me. What’s even more fun… you can knit socks 2 at a time directly from the blank and the striping pattern will be identical on both socks! How brilliant is that? I love knitting socks two-at-a-time and this completely takes away the issue of having the two balls tangling around each other.”

“For those who like the idea of knitting from a flat but would like to dye their own, Knit Picks developed Bare Sock Yarn Dye Blanks. The 462-yard blank is double stranded. That means your socks can match and be knit 2 at a time.” Knitting Purls, July 2008

The sock blank took to the color well but I am finding I don't care for the yarn itself. It seems to have more of a cotton feel and very little spring to it. I'm frogging the sock I started because of the lack of stretch.

I really enjoyed using the sock blank for my 1st dyeing project. I hand painted it. It helps to know some basics like presoaking it, using vinegar if using acid dye, painting on the purl side(for better absorption), and unraveling the correct end. It was fun to paint it, then see how it looked when winding into balls, then a surprise when knitting it into socks. I bought 2 more so I can play some more. The yarn was very nice to knit up too.

My family and I have had fun planning, dyeing, and finally getting knitted socks in colors and patterns devised by each person. We've done it five times already. The blank's double yarn creates matching socks without having the hassle of dividing a ball of yarn in half. Unwinding the blank is easiest with two ball winders.

Love these sock blanks. I have dyed many of them and have never had white spots. Unwinding them to a ball winder was effortless! Would highly recommend

These are so much fun! I've really enjoyed playing with putting color on these. My colors all came out beautiful and have stayed bright and vibrant after many washes. I knit up my socks 2 at once with no problem! I have also wound one of these into 2 separate balls...if you have 2 ball-winders or 2 people, it's quick and easy. I'll definitely be getting more :)
