Yesterday, 3/21, was the first full day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. I could not be more glad for that. Unfortunately, there has been a HUGE fire at one of the oil refinery plants, which started on Sunday and re-ignited a couple times, including this afternoon. Thus, there has been huge plumes of smoke over my area, as well as “shelter-in-place” warnings, school closures, and other sorts of inconvenience. For me, it’s only meant not fully enjoying doors and windows open very much, plus a bit of a cough.
Other than that, though, I was able to get an early start on this week’s Blog Reader Specials, dyeing up two dozen Phydlbitz Sock. Because I have changed some of my methods and techniques over the years, I decided to try some of the older colorways with the newer methods. I wasn’t disappointed with how things turned out, just disappointed I couldn’t replicate the earlier colorways.
Phydlbitz Sock is normally $27.00. In honor of Spring’s arrival on 21 March, this week’s preview pricing (effective through Sunday) is $3.21 OFF — $23.79!
They’re all in the fan room to finish drying. I hope to get them reskeined on Sunday or Monday, posted to the BRS page on Tuesday, so they should be shipping on or before Wednesday. While experimenting, I started with Singles, then switched to Twinsets, so there’s a mix in this week’s collection. The Twinsets are indicated with a little underscore line joining the pairs together. When appropriate I have rotate one skein of each Twinset so you can see all the colors on both skeins. If you need closer pictures of specific skeins to guide your selections, feel free to ask.
