I received! I received! *jumps up and down*
My beauteous partner tenrec sent me:
- a gorgeous skein of 2-ply turquoise-with-lavender merino
- a fun skein of bright red merino plied with a metallic thread (I named it "Santa Pants")
- and a massive collection of Kool-Aid so I can play with dyeing!
I hope you took a pic to share the pretties with everyone! If not I will squeeze them into my scanner tonight.
I just realized that I never posted the pictures of the yarns that I sent to BlooCanoe! They're all 100% merino that I handdyed.
Here they are:
I wasn't very happy with this dye job to be honest - I was going for a much more saturated turquoise, and with more contrast between the turquoise and purple parts. I don't think you can even see much purple from this photo. But I went ahead and spun it up and plyed it, and I thought the resulting yarn wasn't too bad
There's about 150 yds there.
And this is "Santa's Pants!" (I love that name Bloo!!!)
Here's a closeup:
It's handdyed merino plyed with a red metallic thread. I wish there was more of it - it's only about 68 yds, but that's all of the red merino that I had.
I can't wait to see what you make with it, BlooCanoe!
