I’ve continued working on the 20-Stitch blanket project. Here is how far I got by Saturday evening, having turned a corner and changed colors. I worked some more yesterday afternoon, and then discovered I had added a stitch, so everything I did yesterday was ripped out. But even so, progress is being made.
Yesterday, between dyeing batches of yarn, I ordered out for lunch (I’m loving DoorDash delivery!) from China Ko, and one of the fortune cookies included this:
I have no idea just which of my talents may be especially useful this week, but this morning’s week-ahead report from Mario Gomez suggests I will have to dance around some unfortunate weather, all through the coming weekend. 🙁
And, of course, as has become my habit I usually aim to dye sometime Friday through Sunday most weekends. UGH! Of course. Why should be work schedule be smooth all the time, right?
Perhaps my most useful talent this week would be floating….?
Anyway, my week was wonky last week while using up cones of leftover yarns, which I joined together to make full hanks.
There are now just six remaining, and are available at $15.00 each. These are undyed, and they do have joins. First come, first served. Just ask for Bare Naked Phydlbitz, as many as you want, until they are all gone. They are now all gone!
Once I got these all done and processed, I was able to dye the regular weekend batch of Phydlbitz Sock for you. These are 75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 each, all dyed as Twinsets using various techniques.
These will be available Monday and Tuesday at preview pricing — $2.00 off each skein, and should be posted to the Blog Reader Specials page on or before Wednesday. Also, these will be ready to ship on or before Wednesday. 🙂
To claim the ones you want, just send me an email with your numbered requests, and if you’ve not ordered before be sure to indicate your destination state or country. If you would like a shipping estimate for international shipping, please ask.
Many of the two-tone hanks would be excellent for making self-striping spiral stripe socks, while the multi-tone and speckled yarns would be great for larger-than-socks projects, like shawls or baby blankets.
