Since someone asked for more of the Barista Collection Quad sets on Knitterman’s Lace, I did another set, plus two other sets!
BRS16-391 – 393 — Phydlbitz Sock, 75/25 SWCorriedale/Nylon, 430 yards – $26.00
#394-405 are all Knitterman’s Lace and will be broken down into Quad Sets; each Quad set will have a mini hank of each of the four colors in its set: Barista Collection, Winestain Fade, and “My Garden Exploded. Each minihank has 250 yards, so the full Quad set will have 1000 yards, same as a regular skein of Knitterman’s Lace.
The darkest one in the Barista Collection is supposed to be dark-dark-darkly brown, and is currently being re-dyed. I’m not sure why it washed out to gray, but it will be corrected to be similar to the previous Barista Collection (see picture further down). The other three colors in this set came out better, or at least more to my liking than the previous version. (Note: The redyed version is shown below the numbered version.)
Winestain Fade runs from a dark dark burgundy to as pale as I could make it.
“My Garden Exploded” — it happened because of a mistake, and the only way I could fix it was to make the same “mistake” on three other contrasting skeins! 🙂 Each skein is a tonal/variegated version of the base colors, and each has at least two different colors applied.
When these are re-assembled into their appropriate Quad Sets and are moved to the Blog Reader Specials page they will be listed at $30.00 apiece. If you claim them before Wednesday, you can have them for $26.00 apiece.
To claim any of these, email me and let me know which ones you want, either the Phydlbitz Sock by number, or the Quad sets by name. These will ship on Thursday, if not Wednesday — depends on how quickly they get dried and reskeined into their Quad sets.
All have been posted to the Blog Reader Specials page. Check there for current availability.
There is the picture with the redyed darkest skein for the Barista Collection. (Later in the day and the sun is playing behind the trees, making funny shadows.)
The upper right yarn is how the darkest skein is supposed to be in the Barista Collection and the final will be that color or better.
