I took care to make sure none of last week’s issues repeated this week, and I am happy to report that the dyes and the yarns behaved this week as they should have. That’s always warrants a sigh of relief. 🙂
I am continuing to experiment with the “Sherbet” technique that is supposed to produce softly dyed colors that blend into each other, allowing for multiple colors around the coiled hank. The trick is figuring out which color to apply first and which colors just should not abut other colors if I want to avoid a sharp change-of-color mark like you can see on Twinset #788-789.
Twinset #782-783 is very similar to the Vanilla Bean & Chocolate Chip single skein I dyed last week — basically a splurge of brown sprinkles that is allowed to migrate along the strand of yarn. Twinset #798-799 is a similar splurge of brown sprinkles but when an overlay of a blended green and a bit of gold; I imagine it would knit up into some amazing Camouflage socks. Twinset #792-793 is a two-tone of medium gray and antique gold. Twinset #780-781 is a darkened red/blue blend that I wasn’t expecting when I mixed it up, topped with.
Most of the rest are fairly self-explanatory as for colors, but I am happy to take pictures of any Twinset you have questions about.
And although I dye the yarns as Twinsets, you are welcome to select just one skein from a pair.
All of these are Phydlbitz Sock (75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards each). Not only is it a sturdy and dependable sock yarn that I’ve been proud to dye for the last 10 years, it continues to be popular for socks as well as shawls, hats, sweaters, baby blankets, and many other projects calling for fingering weight yarn.
Phydlbitz Sock is normally $27.50 apiece, but for Sunday and Monday you can have any of this new collection (BRS22 – #776 – 799) for just $25.50. Send me an email with the BRS22 numbered item you want.
I expect to have these ready to ship on or about Thursday. I have to be at clinic on Friday so I want these to go out before then. 🙂
