Solids Made for Combining

Good morning and Happy Saturday!

I wanted to start with a reminder that there is a still a deal on the Blog Reader Specials page — 10% off all posted items, as well as the Blind Bundle deal with 3 skeins of Phydlbitz Sock for just $70 (save $12.50 for each bundle).  This offer ends tonight.

Now for this week’s new Blog Reader Special collection – two dozen Phydlbitz Sock dyed as mostly solid Twinsets.

I went into the session planning on solids because nearly all the  previously shown Phydlbitz Sock yarns are multi-color and will look amazing combined with coordinating/contrasting solids.  If there are unclaimed yarns this week, I will combine them with some other Phydlbitz Sock as 3-skein bundles, but I will photograph and post them so you can see the yarns and imagine the possibilities.  This will be coming in the next week or so.

As I prepared the dyes, I started by blending dyes into the jars — a little of this and a little of that into each jar– to create blended solids;  I specifically didn’t want just straight dyes from the jars of dye powder.  Then as I dyed each Twinset, I further blended the pre-blending dyes into the dipping bowl, further blending and combining the dyes.  Thus, none of this week’s collection is a straight dye.  On some of them there appears to be layering and separating, but they were all dyed the same way using a dip-dye technique.  It would be nearly impossible to identify each of the individual colors I used on any particular Twinset, but the pictures I show here are as true as I can make them.

If you need a close-up of any particular Twinset, please let me know and I can grab a picture for you.

Phydlbitz Sock is normally $27.50 each, but for Saturday and Sunday, you can take any two or more for just $25.50 each, matching or not matching.

I expect to have this week’s collection all processed and ready to ship on Thursday or Friday.

To claim the ones you want, just send me an email with your requests.  I’ll marked them off the Available Yarns tally chart and then send a PayPal invoice.  It’s okay if you don’t have a PayPal account; they will process your credit/debit cards just fine so I never see your financial information.   PayPal also takes care of shipping details, so be sure they have your current shipping address.  However, do let me know if you are outside the U.S. so I can calculate your shipping charges correctly.

Also, it is perfectly fine to combine requests to take some of  this new collection and any previous Blog Reader Specials and Blind Bundles.  I can manually create your invoice to ensure you are bill correctly.

Available Yarns:
Rack 1 – 373, 374, 375, 376, 377, 378, 379, 380, 381, 382, 383, 384
