Art Blanks – Hand Painted Sock Blanks

If you are a sock knitter that enjoys experimenting with color, you will love knitting socks from artfully painted sock blanks. Andre Sue’s art blanks are long, rectangular pieces of knitted fabric that have been carefully painted with professional acid dyes.

The edge of the blank is loose so that you can pull out the stitches and knit directly from the blank. The basic idea is that you get beautiful yet unpredictable colorway in your finished knitted piece. These art blanks are popular for knitting socks but you can also use them to knit gorgeous shawls, mittens or hats.

New designs are added to our Etsy shop every Saturday at 11am Eastern.
