Whatever you call it, I was delighted that my granddaughter Devyn wanted to come and dye with me on Wednesday. The idea was that I would show her a technique as I did a Twinset, and then she would use that technique on a Single. As it turned out, my body could not do a full dye session — it took twice as long to do one batch with her than it does when I work alone, and I simply had to stop after the first batch. Not her fault, of course, it’s my own failing body. BUT, it was fun and she got to dye four hanks of Lovely Sock. I was able to dye the 2nd batch on Thursday.
Anyway, here she is dyeing her very first hank of yarn (hint: it’s #794, on the 2nd rack of yarns below). She had a good time, and I hope she wants to continue learning about dyeing. Wouldn’t it be awesome if she started her own yarn-dyeing business, or even became a regular helper with Knitivity? 😀 But that’s a dream for another day; for now I’m happy to enjoy her company. And, of course, pay her for her work.
Anyway, there are now 24 hanks of Lovely Sock (80/20 Superwash Merino/Nylon, 430 yards) available for you. I was going to wait until Sunday to show these, since there is already a sale on the Blog Reader Specials page, but I’ve had other plans come up for the weekend, and it doesn’t seem many are interested in the previously shown BRS yarns.
So, for Friday and Saturday, you can have preview pricing on these newest BRS yarns (#774-797), each hank for $25.00. They’ll be $27.00 each when they go to the Blog Reader Specials page. All of my dyes were done at Twinsets, all of Devyn’s were done as Singles. There is no obligation to take both skeins of a Twinset.
Since I do have other weekend plans, I will say these will be ready to ship on or before Wednesday — probably Tuesday, but I like to allow myself extra time these days.
To claim the ones you want, just send me an email with your numbered selections.
