UPDATE: All of the yarns not claimed over the weekend have now been posted to the Blog Reader Specials page; click through to see the individual presentation shots of each.
Following last week’s experiment with pastel-ish colors on the Phydlbitz Sock, I had plenty of leftover pastel-ish dyes, so I wanted to see how they play on Primo Lace. I also wanted to try some of the dry-dye techniques on the Primo, and I was counting on Primo‘s tendency to let dye migrate — it worked on some of them, and then not so much on others. A few have areas that look “undyed”. Normally that’s not a good thing, but on these I think of them as “beauty marks”. 🙂
There was one Twinset (261-262) that was a “pastel black” — it was a very diluted solution of black that looked pale gray when I dipped it. However, after the steaming, washing and rinsing it showed a sort of greenish overcast. I thought I was ugly and said on Facebook I would hold it back and over-dye it with something more pleasant, but a couple of people wanted to see it so I’m including it here to be claimed “as is”, green overcast and all. I won’t get my feelings hurt if nobody claims these two — I was planning to overdye anyway.
Among the splattered yarns (2nd picture, all singles), 269 is black, 270 is cerulean, 271 is a misty green and gray, 272 is pink and gray, 274 is violet, and 278 is blue and violet. 277 is a Twin of a custom dye that was done for someone. 275 is an amazing (and sadly unrepeatable) charcoal — unrepeatable because I was nearly done dyeing and had one hank of Primo remaining, so I dumped ALL the remaining dyes into a single dip-dye. 🙂
These will be dried and processed over the weekend, and should be ready to ship no later than Tuesday (probably Monday, but I like to give myself some wiggle-room in case things come up).
To claim the ones you want, just send me an email indicating your numbered selections. I’ll send a PayPal invoice for the price indicated, plus shipping/handling to your destination (be sure I know your state or country so I can calculate correctly).
