We’re at the end of another month already, nearly 3/4 through 2020. As crazy as this year has been, someone on Facebook quipped “Are you ready for the 2020 Season Finale?” I’m not sure how this year could be worse, and I’m not asking, either!
Anyway, the weather has finally turned toward autumn here in Houston. Still pretty warm — today should hit near 90ºF, but it was in the 70s this morning, nice and breezy. I can deal with that.
While catching up on custom orders, I was able to do a batch of Blog Reader Specials this weekend. I was using a limited palette this time, mostly leftover dyes from the week’s custom dye jobs. I added little bits of other things, playing “What If ….?” on many of them, just to try new combinations. I have to say I am quite pleased with this week’s BRS Collection.
These are all Phydlbitz Sock (75/25 Superwash Corriedale/Nylon, 430 yards), and all dyed as Twinsets. As always, there is no obligation to take both skeins of a Twinset — they make it easier to knit up larger-than-socks projects to ensure color compatibility. I do, of course, recommend knitting from both skeins, alternating every couple of rows to minimize pooling and to avoid the dreaded obvious change of skeins that sometimes happen when you knit all of one skein and then use the second one. The colors are the same but how they land on the yarn can’t always be controlled so as to make them identical in all respects.
All Phydlbitz Sock are normally $27.00 each. They will all be reskeined and properly labelled, but since you are viewing them before reskeining, for Sunday and Monday you can claim the ones you want for $25.00 each.
To claim the ones you want, just send me an email with your numbered requests. My goal is to have these processed and ready to ship on or before Thursday.
All of the unclaimed selections have now been posted to the Blog Reader Specials page.
