Holy Jamoley, you guys!!!! Check out the weekend ahead here in Houston:
I’m glad I got an early start with this weekend’s dyeing. AND I have a 24-ounce pork loin filet in the slow cooker (with carrots, celery, onions, garlic, and potatoes!), so I won’t have to do any more serious cooking for a while, too! Oh, and the aroma….?? Oh yessss! In this kind of weather peanut butter on a whole wheat tortilla works just fine for me, along with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Earlier this week I made a couple attempts at a custom job, and after my client made her selection, I was left with several skeins of Phydlbitz that became Blog Reader Specials! By the way, did you know that back when I started dyeing yarn, I did a lot more custom dyeing and making mistakes, as well as experimenting with possible colorways? Whatever didn’t work for a regular colorway or didn’t please a client was stuck here on the Blog for the readers to claim what they wanted. Now over 95% of my work is Blog Reader Specials and I get to play and experiment nearly all the time. 🙂
So I had several singles available already from what my client didn’t want, so I didn’t have to slave over the steamer all day for a full batch and I was able to get everything done before noon and get it out to cool, then wash, rinse, and hang to dry.
Shown below is the week’s work — 25 skeins of Phydlbitz Sock (75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards each). Most of the earlier custom work was wood-and-field colors so I tried to make today’s work with more ‘Happy Colors’, and then on the racks I mixed them all together, some Twinsets, some Singles. As always you do NOT have to claim a Twinset if you only want just one. 🙂
Also #660 and #680 started as a Twinset when I dyed them a while back, but #660 got a smudge of some other color in the middle of the pink during the washing process (you can see the smudge at the top near the rod), so they are no longer identical. I was holding them back to try and re-do them to be more matching, but then I realize some people don’t need two matching and would be happy with one or the other. 🙂
To claim the ones you want, just send me an email with your numbered selections. These will be ready to ship on or before Tuesday.
