Yesterday over on Facebook someone posted this picture of the Southern Cassowary.

According to Wikipedia, the southern cassowary (Casuarius casuarius) also known as double-wattled cassowary, Australian cassowary ortwo-wattled cassowary, is a large flightless black bird. It is a ratite and therefore related to emu, ostrich, and theRhea and Kiwi genera.

Of course, had I done my research before dyeing anything, I would have seen there is much more to this bird than just the grays and blues I saw on the face; there is the mostly black body, the red wattle, the brilliant blue throat/neck, and the large casque on top of the head. Nevertheless, I dyed what I saw in the first image. Or at least what I thought I saw. And there is always another opportunity to do a different version, right? 🙂
My attempt at capturing the colors I saw are shown on the Lovely Sock (#522 & 523) and the Primo Lace (#534 & 535), shown below.
Altogether there are 6 Lovely Sock and 8 Primo Lace; fiber content, yardage, and price as indicated on the photo. All the Primo Lace were dyed as Twinsets, but you are free to claim just one of a set. On the Lovely Sock,
#522 & 523, and #524 & 525 are a Twinset. The other two are Singles. Twinset pairs are skewed to show the full range of colors within each Twinset.
To claim the one(s) you want, send me an email with the item numbers you’d like. Be sure to check the Blog Reader Specials page to see if you’d like any there as well. These new yarns will be ready to ship on Monday.
