wow…. I know the rest of the U.S. is also experiencing c-c-cold temperatures, so I won’t complain too much, but golly gee I woke to temps in the mid-40s this morning. Apparently we are done with 80s and 90s for the season, but I really wish we could gradually acclimate to changes inside of all this way up and way down back and forth nonsense. On the other hand, cooler temperatures mean more people are knitting!
As promised, I split this week’s Collection between Primo Lace and Phydlbitz Sock, and they all used a wet dye technique this time. 🙂 There will be even more Primo next week.
There was some great positive feedback on last week’s Phydlbitz Twinset (1004-05) with wet-on-dry application ….
so I used similar combinations for two of the Primo Twinsets (1028-29, 1032-33) and one Phydlbitz Twinset (1036-37). Each pair is, of course, slightly different, but they all started with a base layer of purple and a light blue. Other colors were layered on top of the base layers. It is difficult to do a ‘light’ colored yarn when working with layers, but the depth and variations are amazing to look at, and the produce rich and vibrant shawls and scarves. I can sometimes achieve this with Patina or Mother-of-Pearl, but even those go dark sometimes if I’m not careful.
To claim the ones you want, send me an email with your numbered selections; if you’ve not ordered recently, be sure to remind me of you location so I can calculate correct shipping charges. For international requests, I prefer to use First Class International, as it is often about 1/2 or 1/3 the price of Priority International rate.
Primo is regularly $32.00 each; preview pricing for Saturday and Sunday, Primo Lace will be $28.00; Phydlbitz is regularly $27.00, preview pricing for Saturday and Sunday is $24.00. These will be ready to ship on or before Tuesday.
ETA: All of the yarns not claimed from the preview racks on Sunday have now been posted to the Blog Reader Specials page.
