Last weekend I ordered a goodly lot of Phydlbitz Sock, and the original tracking indicated arrival on Wednesday. It didn’t actually get here until Friday evening, and I spent time yesterday pullling hanks from cones, which I dyed today.
While waiting for these yarns to arrive, I cast on and machine-knit another blanket, like the last one, this time for my daughter-in-law. Essentially the same as my son’s blanket, in design, but I’m handling the side ribbing a little differently. It’s not going any faster that the last one, but it is definitely easier because I allowed extra yarn to accommodate reversing all those knits into purls. I took it off the machine on Friday, and now it’s a lap-job for me to finish:
Since I came up 27 hanks short last month I didn’t hit my goal for the year of 1100 hanks by the end of November. So I will be having a few extra batches this month so I can hit 1200 by New Years.
These are the Phydlbitz Sock I dyed today — all Twinsets, 75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards each. They are regularly $27.00 each, or $48.00 together when bundled as Twinsets. As always, there is no obligation to take both hanks of a Twinset if you only want one. I do Twinsets as a convenience for those who like to do larger projects and need color compatible yarns. My Twinsets are not always exactly identical, but always color-compatible. I always recommend using both hanks simultaneously, alternating every 2-4 rows to minimize pooling and to avoid the obvious ‘change-of-yarn’ color shift that sometimes happen. 🙂
These will be ready to ship on or before Wednesday. To claim the ones you want, just send me an email with the numbered items you’d like, and if you’ve not ordered recently, be sure to let me know your state or country so I can calculate shipping correctly. Also, since I use PayPal to process payments and shipping, be sure your correct shipping address is on your PayPal account.
