All of the yarns that were not claimed from the previews have now been posted to the Blog Reader Specials page; click through to see the individual presentation photos. Shown here are the group shots:
Recently I have been digging through long forgotten bins of yarns set aside for other purposes that never came to fruition. This week, that includes 5 skeins of the old Knitterman’s Lace — 100% Merino laceweight, 1000 yards each. I’m sure as I dig further into the depths of the workroom I will find other fun yarns of various sorts.
I started last night’s dye session with one palette of colors, and finished this morning with a totally different palette. And as I was cleaning up afterward this morning, I forgot that emptying jars and squeeze bottles would leave a stain. My hands are currently sporting several interesting colorways. Hahahaha.
And, of course, the weather was toying with me after i hung the yarns out to dry. I like to photograph in good daylight, but the sun and the clouds were messing with my head — I’d get ready for pics under cloudy skies and the sun would pop out. I’d shift position and the sun would hide behind the clouds again. Grrrrr. Mostly I just like all the pictures of a set at least look like they are all taken the same time or day. I finally got what I wanted, and the results are shown below. Be sure to scroll all the way down so you can also see the lace yarns.
These will all be ready to ship on or before Wednesday (probably Tuesday, but I like to leave a cushion of time for “just in case”).
To claim the ones you want just send me an email with your numbered selections and be sure I know if I will be shipping stateside or international. I try to honor all requests in the order they are placed. Since I do post notices in many places, I do prefer getting email requests — partly because they are timestamped with the time of origin, but also because I can’t always monitor all the various other messaging systems (Facebook, Ravelry, Twitter, Instagram, etc.), and email ensures everyone is on a fair and even field so I can honor their requests fairly. 🙂
Phydlbitz Sock are $27.00 each; Merino Lace is $30.00 each; But for Saturday and Sunday (April 6 & 7), you get 10% off for preview pricing off the rack. Everything still gets reskeined and labeled of course, but claiming yarns off the drying rack means I don’t have to be taking and editing individual presentation photographs. Win-win for both of us!
All of the Phydlbitz Sock were dyed as Twinsets. Just for the record, however, they are not shown in the order they were dyed. I dye in whatever order catches my fancy, but then I hang them so there is good contrast between each Twinset, and then I number them in the order that looks best to me on the rack. When appropriate, I have rotated one hank of each Twinset so you can see all the different colors and sequence that are on both skeins of a set.
