What a fun set of Blog Reader Specials for you this week! There are 12 Primo Lace and 12 Phydlbitz Sock.
A few years ago I did something called “After Hours” — black, blackened purple, blackened blue, and blackened red — reminiscent of the wee hours of the morning, walking downtown and all is dark but the glow of red and blue neon lights reflecting in the rain-puddled sidewalks. And then I did one without the blue (“Luscious”), and another without the red (“Indulgence”). It became the “After Hours Collection” of colorways.
Yesterday I did a full set of these colorways again. Actually I did Twinsets of each of them, in both Phydlbitz and Primo. The different yarns react to the dye slightly differently, but they have the same colors applied from the same batches.
The colors of the After Hours Collection are all Twinsets; the other six on each rack are individually dyed Singles. These can be claimed off the rack before being posted to the Blog Reader Specials page on Sunday; just send me an email with your numbered selections and I’ll send you a PayPal invoice. These will be ready to shipping on Monday, July 18.
ALL ARE NOW POSTED TO THE BLOG READER SPECIALS PAGE.
Phydlbitz Sock – 75/25 SW Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards, $26.00. See close-up of 476 down at the bottom — it is covered with tiny speckles!

Here is the close up of #476 — little speckles of dye molecules that didn’t fully dissolve in the dye solution, but dissolved later in the steamer.
