The Yarnarian Has Her Dyeing Mojo Back!
DM, aka Dyeing Mojo, comes and goes. Right now it's spot on, which makes me a very happy camper given that I need to do some serious dyeing! giggle.
Here's what's being listed on Etsy this week. You, of course, my faithful Bloggettes, may order directly from me and pretty much get first pickings. email, as you know, is fritzL234 AT yahoo DOT com.
First of all, 2 very pretty and exciting Penny yarns: Merry-go-round and Mysterious.
Next are 2 Bambi yarns: Pretty Girl and Shale.
One lone Rose yarn: Stained Glass.
And, ta da, the return of KONA! Yup, that wonderful yarn that I sold this time last summer. I have a bit of it left, and if it goes, I'll order more. Here are the essentials: 100% superwash merino, fingering wt, in 1100 yard skeins. There's enough to make a shawl, stole, scarves, even lots of socks. Or a matching scarf and a pair of socks or whatever you wish. You have to knit with it to believe how soft and lovely it is. At the moment, the price is $35/skein + shipping; it may go up a little bit if I order more depending on how much it costs me. Even with that price, this is great value for the buck. These are big skeins, so figure on the shipping being a bit more to non-domestic places.
Knitting News: Not too much except for making my way to finishing the cashmere scarf and working on the lace yarn one. However, in a moment of total madness, I decided to knit Miss P an AG doll outfit. I found a lovely pattern for many pieces on the web, bought and downloaded it. I got about 2 inches into the skirt when I knew that the AG doll would swim in it. Frogged (so what else is new?), changed the pattern for my gauge, and knit this. I have about 3/4" to go, but at 280 stitches per round, it's taking me a while to get it done. Yarn is Tofutsies.
I'm planning on knitting a top to it out of white Dale Baby Ull with the skirt yarn as trimming.
And that's what's new in the world of Chez Yarnarian.
