Okay, so that was a bad joke. But anyway, this week I had a request for some “Forest Camo” on Phydlbitz Sock, so I made three versions. Now that my client has selected the version she wanted, I can show all the remaining yarns. Along with the three versions of “Forest Camo”, there are several other Twinsets made from various combinations of the colors I used for the Camo.
As you know I don’t normally name my colorways, mostly because I can’t duplicate most of them close enough to use the same name next time around. But a couple of them I was amused as I dyed them…. like 447&448:
Or the Twinset 457&458: As I was dyeing this pair, the thought in my head was: “The grass is always greener … if you water it.” 🙂
For most of the Twinsets, one hank of each pair is rotated so you can see all the colors available on both hanks. The Twinsets were dyed with the same yarns in the same steamer pouch, and are virtually identical in color and proportion. If you are knitting a project with both hanks, I do, of course, recommend alternating balls or hanks every couple rows to avoid unwanted pooling as well as eliminate the sometimes-obvious new-ball-of-yarn difference. BUT… there is no obligation to take both hanks of a Twinset; they will all be listed individually with their presentation photos when they land on the Blog Reader Specials page.
These will all be ready to ship by or before Tuesday. To claim the ones you want you may send me an email with your numbered selections. Because I post in several places, I can’t monitor all those places, so the only fair way is to honor requests based on their email time-stamp, first-come, first-served.
All the yarns unclaimed from the pictures below have now been posted to the Blog Reader Specials page; click through to see which ones remain available at the time of your visit.
