Welcome to Sock Blank Secrets!

Hello! *waves* I'm Clair, aka Mrs Flowerpot. This is my new blog where I'll be sharing all my experiments in knitting and dyeing and crafting in general. I'm always thinking up new ways of doing things, some work, some don't but I always have fun trying!

A couple of years ago I came up with a new way of dying sock blanks to make self patterning socks. No more ugly pooling or mismatched patterns just perfect stripes and patterns and all from a single ball of yarn. I've written up the instructions so why not have a go yourself. I will warn you it's rather addictive though so don't blame me if it turns into an obsession!

Happy knitting!



  1. Look forward to see ing what you come up with m'darlin ;)

  2. All I can say is -- WOW!

    Math is not my strong suit, but you made it so easy. I can't wait to try this and experiment.

    Thank you Clair!
