Diy sock blanks

I have wanted to try dyeing sock blanks but they work out quite expensive if I want to sell them on after dyeing . I brought a 42 needle round knitting machine from Lincraft last time I was in Adelaide.
I used my normal sock undyed merino and polyamide  and used two thread at a time well its a bit of work but well worth it once the blank is knitted , dyed washed and wound

I took a bit of practice to get the machine to not drop a stitch but then I realized for the blank it didn't matter at all. 😺
