For your consideration, a new approach to sock knitting. Not on 2 circs, not Magic Loop, not two-at-a-time — in fact, the glorious weirdness originates not in the needles but in the yarn.
Peoples, that's not an FO. It's Flat Feet by Conjoined Creations, purchased yesterday at Knitty City. The yarn (80% superwash merino/20% nylon) is knit into rectangles which are then hand-dyed; you knit them up directly from the rectangle.
As described on their website, "Your needles drip color as you, the artist, create socks that are solely (no pun intended) your own."
I'm kicking myself for not getting any pictures of the color selections at the store - there was one in particular that looked tie-dyed, and I can't even begin to imagine what the color distribution for the socks will be like, but there are some samples on the website's gallery that should give you an idea.
Nuts, I tell you. Should make for some interesting knitting, though.
