Deep, gorgeous yarns! (except for one light one)

Yarns, beautiful yarns.

I did promise you yarns yesterday, and here we are. All are very rich and one is pastel, just because I couldn't bear to toss away the pretty dye solution.

Two are sort of repeats of last week's Night at the Mooseum. Sort of because I have no idea what went into the various dye solutions I used. Yep, I remember black, and a brown, and a secret color, but I think they are pretty close. Anyhow, you are not going to match them to last week's yarn, so it doesn't really make a difference. Not the prettiest of pictures, and the color is a bit off. Think black and gray and such, even though it wants to look like dark blue. It isn't.

Two are spoken for, so if anyone wants one, tell me now. I'll pick which one at random; they are pretty close.

Here are the rest. Brownstone:

Dark Gems (Benji bamboo/merino yarn)

Cool (the pastel yarn)

Moody Blues:


Sapphire and Amethyst (Bambi merino/bamboo yarn)

All the yarns, except for Sapphire and Amethyst, and Dark Gems, are Penny yarn. Next week I'm dyeing something else.

The two non-Penny yarns are overdyes. I love to take skeins I've dyed up in the past and then overdye them. I don't use just one color to overdye, either. Each of these has 3 colors used in various solutions. You would never believe what they looked like initially. And they are simply beautiful! Very rich and complex and beyond wonderful. I'd keep them for myself except that I need more yarn like a hole in the head. So, I'm letting you have them. The pics do not give you the complete idea of how lovely they are. Uh oh, I'm beginning to think I might need them. HELP! Please buy them and save me some space in the bulging yarn storage tubs.

Plug: There is a lovely young lady on Ravelry and on Etsy with the name of Ibunnysavetroy. How can you possibly resist such a moniker? Anyhow, she's in college, I believe and is selling adorable bags on Etsy for next to nothing. i picked up a couple because I couldn't help myself. These 2 are unlined, but they work just fine, and at approx $6 apiece, how can you go wrong? Give her a look-see and go treat yourself.

You know where to find me: fritzL234 AT yahoo DOT com.

Dark Gems is captured!

Sapphire and Amethyst is grabbed!
