New life for an ugly yarn

This is a hank of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Multi in the Somerset colorway. I loved the color in the hank ...


But hate the way it looks knit up.




Four packages of grape koolaid later, I have this ...


I'm not quite sure about the pattern (one I made up), but I am LOVING the yarn. I had never kool-aid dyed before, but it was super simple, and the results are just amazing.

Now if I can only just decide on a pattern.

The koolaid helped a lot!
Looks really nice and the pattern is nice too.

Cindy, I'd like to ask permission to translate your sock pattern (Hourglass Eyelet Socks) into Spanish for the several 1000 Spanish knitters that visit my sock-knitting tutorial at http://calcetines.wordpress.com.

Would you mind? Please stipulate your requirements, ie. link to photos on your blog, link to your English blog, link to the magknits page? Etc. Etc.

Thanks
Charles
