eta: All of the yarns not claimed from the preview rack pictures have now been posted to the Blog Reader Specials page; be sure to check there to see which ones are available at the time of your visit. Preview pricing still applies through the end of today (Sunday) This is the group shot of the unclaimed yarns from this week’s collection:
I know I’ve complained about the lingering summer heat, coming down and going back up again. A genuine cold front came through on Monday. On Tuesday, the 16th, the high for the day was only 66. Average high for October 16 is 82, but last Tuesday we beat the record for the lowest high temp for October 16, since 1903!!! Anyone with body aches understands why I’ve been hurting the last couple weeks as the seasons change.
But enough of that — everyone has weather and everyone has assorted body troubles. So, onward to other things. For the last several weeks I’ve been participating in a video challenge, designed (in part) to get me more comfortable making videos, so I may start doing the weekend BRS presentations by video, at least some of the time. Might even include dyeing videos, now that I have a better handle on what is important and what is not. 🙂
And now, the yarns!
After some unfortunate circumstance last night, I can only offer 20 hanks of Phydlbitz Sock this week — I dyed 24 but 4 of them had problems with the dyeing, so I’m going to over dye them as solids to add to next week’s end-of-month collection.
Some of these were done wet-on-wet technique, and some were dry-on-wet, and others were a combination. Some of the “smoosh” technique left ample undyed areas for contrast, which is good if you like that sort of thing (like the turquoise and purple, done half-and-half — by the way, the half-and-half dyes nearly always knit socks with self-striping spiraling stripes). 🙂
Phydlbitz Sock is normally $27.00 a hank, but for Saturday and Sunday, you can have the preview price of $25.00. These will be ready to ship on or before Tuesday. Just send me an email requesting the ones you want, and be sure I know your shipping state or country to calculate correct shipping/handling charges.
