I used the gradated dyeing technique. Here's the tutorial.

how did you dye your sock blank?

I'm thinking the Apres' sweater is the project to try, it looks great. And the socks are nice also. I know you weren't thinking the color gradiation was quite right, but who's to know. They have great color.
