Well, I showed the previous post on Facebook and several people suggested I should move forward with the plan to make a set of mini-hanks, even though I was disappointed the colors didn’t come out to match the bird that I was going for.
So… what we have is this — three sets of 6 mini-hanks of Phydlbitz Sock (75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon), with 140+ yards in each minihank, for a total of 840 yards in each set of 6 minihanks, as shown in the first picture. These are $52.00 each, plus s/h.
In the second picture I have shown all three sets, arranged in various ways to show off how the colors might interact with each other.
There is also a small (1.7oz) bundle of the leftovers taken after pulling the 140+ yard hanks — the smallest of these is about 20 yards, some may be 30 yards. This bundle of butterfly bobbins is $10.00 including shipping. Leftover bundle has been claimed!
To claim yours, send me an email and ask for the Banded Broadbill mini-hank set. They’ll come with a Blog Reader Specials number, of course, but for these three I’m not indicating numbers — they’re virtually identical, as I dyed full sized hanks and then broken them into mini-hanks. The one with the pinks in it was dyed black, blackened purple, blackened blue, fuchsia, and pink, with a 72-inch repeat.
Two sets claimed, ONE SET REMAINING
