eta: All the yarns unclaimed from the pictures below have been reskeined and posted to the Blog Reader Specials page:
Wow, what a busy time lately, and things are changing for me a little bit. Brand new computer, brand new camera, and apparently a whole different way of doing things. UGH! But mostly it’s just a matter of figuring how to do what I’ve always done while adjusting to all the new technology. 2019 promises to be a year of adjusting to lots of new things, I suspect. Not a bad thing (I hope), but adjustments just the same. I hope to get more actual knitting (and weaving!) done this year.
Anyway, along with the After Hours Collection orders (see the previous blog post for details), I was able to get two dozen Phydlbitz Sock Blog Reader Specials dyed yesterday for you. They are mostly Twinsets, but also some Singles. They were done in a variety of techniques, and they include some Dump Dyes, which nearly always surprise me — these are done at the end of a dye session when I use up any remaining pre-mixed dyes, just sort of dumping them onto the yarn in whatever combination looks fun and interesting (like 009 & 010 and 015 & 016!). And oddly enough, the Dump Dye yarns are often the first to be claimed. 🙂
When used to knit socks, some of my dye techniques result in self-striping spiral stripes, like 011 & 012, or 021-024.
When today’s collection are all dried and reskeined, these will be ready to ship on or before Wednesday. All of the Twinsets are grouped together and numbered sequentially, so they are easy to identify. You do NOT have to claim both skeins of a Twinset, of course, so feel free to take just one if you don’t need two. To claim the ones you want, just send me an email with the item numbers you want. Phydlbitz Sock yarns are normally $27.00, but are available at preview pricing for Saturday and Sunday for $25.00 each.
