It’s a beautiful sunshiny morning in Houston, heading up to the upper 80s this afternoon, and grass pollen is high (still).
This next week I will be (finally) dealing with leftover cones of Phydlbitz Sock yarn. They all have less than a full hank’s worth, ranging from one ounce to about 3.5 ounces — not enough to make a full hank, and I’ve come to dislike joining yarns to make a full hank. Some of these I do use to make binding ties in preparation for dyeing, but (as you can see) the leftover cones do add up after a while. I will put them up into hanks, joining as required to make 430 yard hanks. They will have very obvious (i.e., easy-to-find) joins in them, and I will wash them, as some of them have been stored in the open. Plus, washing them as I treat the dyed yarns, they will be fluffed up and will work as ‘white’ stripes or however you wish to use them in conjunction with dyed Phydlbitz Sock yarn. Knowing they will have joins and will not be dyed, you will be able to have a hank for just $15.00. I hope to have these all done by next weekend.
Yesterday I dyed up the week’s regular supply of Phydlbitz Sock (75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards each). Because I’ve been going for softer dye jobs recently, I decided to go for bold and saturated this week on most of these. They were all done with a dry-on-wet technique, and then ‘smooshed’ to mix and saturate the color where it landed. They were all done as Twinsets, and the hanks are rotated so that the colors on both hanks of a set are visible. There are some ‘undyed’ (white) sections on some of them — these are deliberate and part of this particular dyeing technique.
I’m not disappointed in any of these, but I am particularly impressed with 360-361. I had done a dip-dye in a pale green-aqua bath, and then applied random navy and purple on top. 🙂
Phydlbitz Sock is normally $27.00 but for Saturday and Sunday you can have preview pricing — $24.00 each.
Just send me an email with your requests. These will be ready to ship on or before Wednesday, as soon as the entire batch is processed. Processing includes reskeining, labeling, taking pictures, editing and posting the photos. Those claimed during preview pricing means I don’t have to take, edit, and post presentation photos, so you get the discount for claiming early; your yarns will always be reskeined and properly presented, of course.
