The Yarnarian Has a Couple of New Yarns and a Plug!
Oh, do I have a plug for you! Do you like stitch markers? Henya of ChickenStitches has just entered the stitch marker field on Etsy, and hers are different and adorable. I bought a set of cat markers and they are so cute. Now we have to convince her to make earrings. Hint, hint, hint.
New yarns: I had more but one of you grabbed 3 that I posted on Ravelry, so we are down to 2 left, but really spectacular yarns, both of which are Alexa.
Here's Purple Mountains. This one is deep purple with a bit of overdyeing here and there of lilac. I know, it doesn't look remotely like lilac, but that was the dye I used. isn't it grand? Way out of my comfort zone of pastels, but I do love it.
And then here are 2 yarns, dyed simultaneously, which is very rare for me, and using a new technique, the same one that I did on Purple Mountains. So you can buy one or both, or I can swipe one for me.
Yes, I know, lots of pics of Santa Fe Sunset, but I'm trying to show you the yarn the best I can.
I just did 10 new skeins, 2 pastel, the others ranging from dark to medium. The dark mojo was with me today. They are soaking wet, and won't be here until tomorrow, I hope.
Henya - I love your stitch markers, and now earrings? whoo hoo.
Sharon - It's sock weight in Alexa, which is very soft. There's enough yardage to make a long or wide scarf, but not enough for a shawl.
itsJUSTme-wendy - Evil laugh! It's even prettier in real life. very evil laugh.
