Another busy week has flown by, and here we are again with another large collection of freshly dyed yarns! This time it is all Phydlbitz Sock (75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards).
Looking at some of these, I’m reminded of weather maps with all the bright storm-warning colors! Right now, our friends in Hawaii are barely dodging what is left of Lane, downgraded to a Tropical Storm. A few days ago it was looking like a Category 5 storm heading right for the islands. And up in the northeast there are storms as well wreaking havoc on many.
Here in Texas it is just plain beastly hot (still). I will be glad when it will be almost shawl and sweater weather here. Fortunately, even here in the south, there are times when a light shawl or cowl is appropriate, and all of these Phydlbitz Sock yarns can be fashioned into accessories to keep you warm head to toe!
All of these were dyed as Twinsets, so you can make larger projects and keep the colors compatible (though I always recommend alternating balls of yarn every couple of rows to break up pooling and to avoid the obvious changes when a new ball is attached). On the other hand, I used a limited palette with each batch, and hung each batch separately this time, so that you can select from several different yarns and play with colors that will work well together.
To claim the ones you want, just send me an email indicating your numbered selections. These will all be ready to ship on or before Tuesday.
