Socky things

It was a lot of fun dyeing up these:



This is a limited-edition colorway called "Jingle Bells," available only until Christmas. I just loaded ten skeins of it onto my website. I also loaded some lovely semi-solids (superwash merino fingering weight) at a special holiday price of $18 a skein (each skein is 400 yds/4 oz), like these two.





In the meantime, I am pleased to let you know that Interweave will be doing some cool promotional things for Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn -- one of which is my guest appearance on the Knitting Daily e-newsletter. I'm also hoping that some of the individual contributors to the book will post on their blogs about their designs. So stay tuned for some fun stuff.

Including a booksigning appearance at Philadelphia's Loop, on Sunday, January 25th, from 1 to 4 p.m. Come and see me, 'kay?

Oh - maybe you should come and get some inspiration from the kitties before your booksigning!

That Jingle Bells looks like candy canes!

I came here after I bought some yarn - and was surprised to see my two skeins featured! And I had a hard time choosing between the grey and burgundy too! Maybe we'll have to make a trip to Philly that weekend...

Just a head's up that there's a dead link on "Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn".


My verification word is "Veratio".

Fixed it! Thanks, sweetie.

It's nice to know some things never change- once again Carol and I got the same colors- the burgundy. Wonder just how similar our stashes really look...

Love that Jingle Bells, had to rush to your site to see if there was any left, was thrilled to get a skein. My first time visiting your blog (found you through a Rav link to your KP comparison from a few years ago), and I'll be back I'm sure. :)
