June has five weekends, which means I don’t have to bust a gut trying to fill the monthly quota in just four weekends — 100 hanks dyed per month, with a weekly BRS collection. So far, I’m still on track, which is amazing, since we got up to #503 last weekend. 🙂
I had tried to start the weekend on Friday with some black-and-charcoal fades, but none of them worked out the way I wanted and will be over-dyed for next weekend. It is disappointing when an entire day’s work is wasted, but in this case it is at least somewhat redeemable. But that was Friday’s dyeing.
Yesterday’s dyeing came out much better, in my opinion. I decided to go into the dye session without any expectations or designs, just let the dyes and my mood-of-the-moment dictate which colors to throw at the yarn. I think these came out pretty good, for the most part. There was a lot of “play-time” involved here, mostly dry-dye technique, so most of these can’t be duplicated in any exact measure.
These are all Phydlbitz Sock, 75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards each, and all were dyed as Twinsets, but as always, you don’t have to take both skeins of a Twinset if you only need one.
To claim the ones you want, just send me an email with your selections indicated by number. These should be ready to ship by no later than Wednesday (probably on Tuesday), when the unclaimed ones will be posted to the Blog Reader Specials page.

Next week I’ll have the overdyes on the unfortunate Phydlbitz I did on Friday, as well as some Superwash Merino worsted weight (210 yards) so you can start your winter knitting. Because the black-and-charcoal yarns were dyed as Twinsets, I’ll be overdyeing the Twinsets so that there will still be two of whichever colors come out as a result. I can almost predict out it turn out with brown or navy overdye, but I’m going to also try to overdye some yellow or gold, and maybe the brilliant green, such as I used on 522-523 above.
