Seems the days are just flying by. We had a few lovely days with above-average temperatures, and now we’re back down into the 30s overnight, possibly below freezing for a few hours Wednesday morning. Oh, Brrrr-r-r-r-r-r-r! Living in a mobile home it is nigh unto impossible to actually get warm, even with the heater going all the time.
But enough of that. I imagine someone somewhere has it even colder, so I’ll just hush on that for now. 🙂
Meanwhile, lookie all the cool things I dyed for this weekend’s Blog Reader Specials update. (Note: there are three pictures this time, so be sure to scroll down to see them all.)
Up first, I wanted to try some of that New England Wool that my friend sent to me. Since even the company cannot tell me anything about the fiber content, I’m just going to use what was on the label: 100% New England Wool. And these are what I’m guessing to be the sport weight version, which I measure out to 270 yards for a 3-ply 4-ounce hank. Because they’ve been on the cone 20-25 years, they appear to be a single, but they are actually 3-ply and soooo soft! I wanted to see how well these yarns take dye, so I did solid colors — and boy, was I surprised! They came up such a treat — bold colors! These are $20.00 apiece.
Then there are a dozen Primo Lace (80/20 Merino/Silk, 1000 yards, $32.00 each); and 18 Phydlbitz Sock (75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards, $27.00).
There’s no way I can process all of these in time to ship on Saturday, and Monday is a postal holiday, so these will be ready to ship on Tuesday.
To claim the ones you want, just send me an email, indicating your selections. I’ll send you a PayPal invoice; as soon as it is paid, I will prepare your order to ship with the next pass of the mail carrier. And be sure to check out the previously posted Blog Reader Specials, and combine your requests to save on shipping!
