Hahaha. Mystery solved?

So remember this neither-success-nor-failure I showed the other day?


Sock yarn that turned into bouclé when I hand-dyed it...

I realized that it's plied around elastic thread. Not sure how I didn't notice the stretchiness when I was winding it into a skein, but anyway. I'm still not entirely sure what happened, but maybe the elastic didn't do well in the nearly boiling water, or maybe my poking and prodding messed around with it.

  1. That may explain it! Either way, I still think it looks pretty cool, although it may be tough to find a pattern for it ;)
