Dyeing yarn for zebra stripes: Part 1

I gave my parents a birthday wish list from knitpicks.com, and it arrived today. Got some of their Felici sock yarn that is very pretty... I think I'm getting backed up on projects that I want to do, but such is knitting. I also got some undyed DK weight yarn and Jaquard acid dyes, so I did some dyeing research today and started to get my yarn prepped. Instead of just laying out the hank and dyeing it, I'm winding it in a weird way to get zebra stripes on socks.
