Happy Friday! I hope everyone is either in tolerable weather or at least finding some shade and staying hydrated. Here in Houston it is expected to hit 100º today; it’s been that high and higher for several days already at my sister’s place in San Antonio. Strangely, just a few days ago, my other sister shared a snow picture from her location in Montana.
Anyway, onward to this week’s Blog Reader Specials!
As is my wont, I played with colors again yesterday. I did not use my regular purple dye, but blended one from one of my blues and one of my reds. The resulting blended dye went as a deep saturation/faded-schmear on Twinset #489-490; when it was freshly wet it reminded me of a black-cherry-vanilla swirl ice cream. I used a lighter saturation of the same blended dye to create the fade on Twinset #483-484.
Twinset #485-486 reminds me of a mottled Tortoiseshell/Calico sort of cat I’ve seen in the neighborhood here. And Twinset #501-502 reminds me of a coffee-scale, from the richest brew to a well-cream coffee. O’course, I only drink my coffee straight black, no cream, no sugar, so perhaps I am mistaken.
Twinset #505-506 is not a solid, but is a blend of 3 or 4 different similar shades of yellows, golds, and oranges.
Twinsets #493-494 is a sky blue fade; #503-504 is a royal blue fade; I wouldn’t put them both together, but either would go well with Twinset #495-496, which is a sprinkle of blue and the black cherry blended dye that I mentioned above.
To claim any of the ones you want, just email me (email@example.com) with your selections. I’ll mark your choices off from the Available Yarns tally chart below, and then I’ll send your invoice. There is never an obligation to take both skeins of a matching Twinset. These were all dye on Phydlbitz Sock (75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards) and will be $27.50 apiece when they move to the Blog Reader Specials page after being reskeined and photographed. For today and tomorrow (Friday-Saturday), you may take any of this new collection (#483-506) at preview pricing 10% off – take as many as you like and I will calculate your invoice with 10% off.
