Last night I dyed up a dozen Phydlbitz Sock, using a variety of techniques — some dry-dye, some wet-dye, and some combinations of wet and dry. In the close-up picture down at the bottom you can see how the different techniques with the same dye can create different effects.
All of these are Phydlbitz Sock – 75/25 SWCorriedale/Nylon, 430 yards, and will be ready to ship on Friday. When they go to the Blog Reader Specials page tomorrow, they will be $26.00 apiece. Claim any of them today (Wednesday, 12April17) for just $22 apiece by sending me an email and telling me which ones you want. I’ll send you a Paypal invoice and will include shipping/handling for y our destination, so be sure to tell me your state or country. 🙂
They are all dyed as Twinsets so they can be used for larger projects like shawls or baby blankets, but there is no obligation to take a Twinset. For example, #206 would be used with #203, or #205, or even #210.
Already Claimed: 200, 201, 202, 203, 204, 208, 209, 210, 211
Here an example of how the dry dye method turns out: I used a wet-dye solution of a gold dyer, mixed into the water/acid solution as I normally do, and laid that as a base. Then I also used a very small amount of the dye powder sprinkled lightly over the top. The dye powder is actually not a single color, but a blend of many colors which, when mixed into solution blend to form the single gold color. But when applied as a dry powder, each of the colors is able to express itself, resulting in a totally unique finished yarn.
After a couple weeks without new yarns, I finally got a couple cones of Phydlbitz Sock, and except for one custom dye request, there were 25 new skeins dyed today for you! A few were done with my regular wet-dye method, but most today were done with a dry-dye technique that produces brighter colors and more saturated when I want it.
All of these are Phydlbitz – 75/25 superwash Corriedale/nylon, 430 yards, and normally priced at $26.00 when they hit the Blog Reader Specials page. If you claim ANY of them this weekend (today and tomorrow), you can claim them for $22.00 apiece. (That goes for any Phydlbitz still remaining on the Blog Reader Specials page, too!

177-178 are a mix of burgundy, pink, and cherry.

While doing a little sifting-and-sorting in the workroom, I found a small package of discontinued yarns that were not connected to anyone’s name, so I dyed them up. First, there are three of the Merino Laceweight yarn, 1000 yards apiece, and then two of the Superwash Corriedale fingering that was rather popular several years ago.
They’ve been individually photographed and posted to the Blog Reader Specials page, so go there to see which ones remain when you come to visit. 🙂
Yeah, yeah… I know. It’s that time of year we get to spend a week adjusting to the time change. But not to worry. We somehow manage to adjust. 🙂

I had a couple of special requests for sock yarn this week, so while I was dyeing those I dyed up the rest of my Phydlbitz yarns.
157-158 are a Twinset
159-160 was supposed to be a Twinset, but 160 managed to get an extra blob of turquoise where I did not intend, so they aren’t really a Twinset any more, unless you don’t mind a gloriously brilliant blob of color on one of them. 🙂 They were started as a dip-dye in the turquoise, and then dry-dyed with a brown and a brilliant green.
#165 is a version of Midnight Green.
Phydlbitz Sock is 75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards each and $26.00 apiece.
