The Yarnarian is in the pink of things...
Plus some other lovely colorways. After all, knitters do not live by pink alone.
Dyeing news: the new offerings for this week. Yep there are 4 pinks, and 4 other pastels. All in almost almost solids to almost solids. First are the pinks, all dyed in Alexa.
Alexa is 80/20 SW merino/nylon. A tad heavier than "regular" sock yarn with great loft so easily knitted at 7.5 - 8 sts/inch. Wonderful for socks and scarves and all those lovely little shawlettes. 4 oz, approx 420 yards.
Where's the Pink?:
And now the Linda Blue Faced Leicester yarn.
Linda BFL is 80/20 SW BFL/nylon. Lofty as is the Alexa, and with a very long staple wool yarn. BFL has to be felt to be believed. It's a remarkable yarn, and I'm luck to get it at such a good price. 4 oz, approx 420 yards.
Cost of each skein is $20 + shipping.

Honey is bought.
Pinkalina and Lavender Blue are sharked.
Jen - I did get a bit carried away with the brightness and all. I set out to do pastels but the dyes would have none of it.
