UPDATE: All the yarns not claimed from the preview racks shown below have now been posted to the Blog Reader Specials page; you’ll need to click through there and see which yarns remain available at the time of your visit. Shown here are all of those not previously claimed.
Okay, so I’m getting back into routine so I can have new preview racks on Friday or Saturday instead of Sunday or Monday. And I am feeling much better than I did last week, but I may still have pushed myself a little too much yesterday. From what I can gather (from what others have said) I probably had a milder flu rather than just a cold. I had my flu shot but apparently many people are getting a strain not covered by the shot, or at least a milder version of it.
But no matter — I muscled through and got 2 dozen Phydlbitz Sock dyed for you this week. 🙂
As I mentioned on Facebook yesterday, much of these were done in what I’m calling a “CloudPrint” technique, in which I don’t apply the dye directly from bottle to yarn. I’ve discovered an intermediate step that allows the dye to be applied in such a way as if to suggest something like clouds in the sky, a wispy and light dye application rather than hard spots of color.
Not all of these were dyed that way — I used some two-tone fade and other techniques as well.
Monday is a holiday, but these should all be ready to ship on or before Wednesday.
Phydlbitz are still just $27.00 apiece, but for Saturday and Sunday you can have the preview price of $25.00 each. These will be reskeined, photographed, and moved to the Blog Reader Specials page Monday or Tuesday.
As is my habit, these were all dyed as Twinsets, but you do not have to claim both skeins of a Twinset — take just one if that’s all you want or need. 🙂
To claim the ones you want just send me an email with your numbered selections. If you’ve not ordered recently, be sure to remind me of your state or country so I can calculate the correct shipping costs. Many of you know the United States Postal Service increased their rates a few weeks ago, so I’m having to adjust even my standard small-package rates for 1-3 skeins of yarn; over 3 skeins goes up to Priority rates based by regions now.
