I have a slightly different collection for you this time. A few regular Phydlbitz Sock Twinsets, and a bunch of mini-skeins (just over 100 yards each). Plus, further down the page are some Charm Squares for quilting or other crafts.
First, the yarns — I wasn’t expecting to have full size skeins until the end of the month but I did find (surprise!) 3 partial cones that had a few skeins left on them. And, since I’ve been pulling mini-hanks from remainder cones, I dyed up a bunch of those as well.
The Twinsets are fairly self explanatory — each done with multi-color slap-dye technique. All of the mini-skeins were dyed as solids. In order to keep them from becoming a tangled mess, I bundled 3 minis together, but I ran out of rings, so two of the bundles have 6 mini-hanks. (It’s amazing how useful shower curtain rings can be!)
Twinsets skeins are 430+ yards per skein. The minis were measured out at 100+ yards each. I always add 5-10 yards extra in all my hanks, so there is plenty of yarn in all my yarns.
Full-size skeins of Phydlbitz Sock are normally $27.50 each. For Sunday and Monday, you can claim any of today’s full size skeins for $25.50 each.
The mini-skeins are $7.50 each, but for Sunday and Monday you can have any or all for $7.00 each. Feel free to mix-and-match whatever combination you like. Because the yarns in each bundle are identical, if you want one that has been claimed, I may send a different one from the same bundle. I will, of course, notify you if all the mini-hanks of a bundle have been claimed.
To claim the ones you want, send me an email with your numbered selections. I’ll mark them off the Available Yarns tally chart just below, then send you a PayPal invoice. I expect to have these ready to ship Thursday or Friday of this week.

And now for something a little different. If you’ve been around a while, you probably remember the Big Surgery I had in January 2020 (aortic bypass). I had to stop working a month or two before then, and was recovering for a few months after, during which time I could not work as I normally had. I was going stir-crazy and ended up buying two huge fat-quarter bundles:
There were 42 fat quarters in each bundle, so I had 84 fat quarters total. I thought to myself, “Tra-la-la, I’ll take up quilting (again) in my copious free time.” I’d been sent a lovely fairly new sewing machine but it had smashed in shipping due to mishandling, not in the original manufacturer’s box (I didn’t have the heart to tell my benefactor at the time, it was such a thoughtful gift), and another machine from a friend needed more refurbishing than I was skilled enough to give it, so that went to my granddaughter.
BUT … I did acquire a large self-healing cutting mat and rotary blade, and eventually got around to ironing each fat quarter and converting all the fat quarters into 5″x5″ charm squares. I figured even someone like me could use one of the gazillion patterns for charm squares and make quilts for the kids or grands. I’d actually considered getting an equal number of white and black charm squares to make a bunch of half-square triangles, which inspires loads of other beautiful geometric patterns.
Alas, it’s been over three years and I have to face the fact that I probably will not get around to using these squares for quilts. I may one day have a machine and other means for making quilts, and I really do want to, but for now I have to let these particular squares go.
I looked up pricing, and most places have 42 squares for $10.95 – $12.95. I paid well over $350 for the two fat quarter bundles. Having done the work of ironing and rotary cutting, I am willing to let the full collection go for $240.00 (which is a flat $10.00 per 42 squares), or $130 if you want only half of them (i.e., just 12 squares per pattern instead of 24).
Obviously, this is a one-time offering, so if you are interested please let me know. I can ship yarns internationally, but I will not be shipping these outside the U.S.
