edit: All of the yarns that were not claimed from the preview racks down below have been posted now to the Blog Reader Specials page. Be sure to click through and see which yarns remain available at the time of your visit. Shown here are the group shots of the unclaimed yarns. All of these are Phydlbitz Sock, 75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards:
Another week has passed, and progress made on correcting the scarf I showed last week. i’m nearly done reknitting the new parts. I’ll make a separate post about that later in the week, when it is finished, so I can show exactly how I corrected the problem.
Meanwhile, I dyed another couple dozen Phydlbitz Sock yesterday. While I was pulling hanks, one of the cones ran out just shy of a full 430 yards, at about 400 yards. I went ahead and dyed it with the rest, and will take an extra $2.00 off that one. I stuck it at the end of the 2nd rack, easy to find — it is #198 and marked “short”. 🙂
They were all dyed as Twinsets — two dyed together in the same pouch with the same dyes, to ensure color compatibility. Several (179-180, 181-182, 185-186, and 189-190) will most likely knit up as self-spiral-striping when knit as socks, as this often happens with segmented dyes; the others (dyed in cloud-print or watercolor techniques) will do well in larger projects, like shawls, scarves, etc., while knitting from two skeins and alternating every couple of rows to minimize pooling.
All of these will be ready to ship on or before Wednesday, and are offered for Saturday and Sunday at preview pricing – $25.00 each. On Monday they’ll go to the Blog Reader Specials page at regular price, $27.00, after reskeining and individual presentation photos.
For today and tomorrow, if you need a better view of a specific Twinset, just let me know and I will try to get a shot like this one (#175-176) for you. This pair just struck me as particularly pretty. You might be attracted to some other yarns, so I’m happy to make an extra photo to help your decision-making. 🙂
To claim the one(s) you want, just send me an email and indicate your numbered choices.
