I'm offering hand-dyed yarn, which was acid dyed with Kool-Aid, and a "Tubcake."

You will get two large skeins of yarn. The yarn is worsted-weight 100% merino wool and each skein measures in at 223 yards or 204 meters.



I have dubbed the first skein "Sunset Storm." It is reds, corals, yellows, aquas and purple-y colors.




"Dusk on the Beach" - aquas, blues, purples, light greens:




I was trying to get Noro-esque on these yarns, which means they have long colorways and lots of different colors. To confess, I love Noro yarn, but it's too expensive for me for the little amount per skein and the scratchiness of it. This Christmas I received a gift certificate to a fancy yarn store so I bought some. Of course I plan to use it for a knitted or crocheted project, but my immediate thought was to deconstruct a skein of it to see just how long the colorways are. After a lot of math and untangling of yarn, the two skeins above are what I made.

Let me know if you would like them wound into center-pulling balls.

And the Tubcake? What is that? It's my new, improved, super-duper deluxe hollow cupcake!









I was bitten by the love bug and wanted to make something pretty and pink for St. Valentine's Day. It's pretty sickening, huh?

So here is everything together:

Wow - you are really going to have a popular package!!
It makes me wish I weren't allergic! I have never used hand dyed yarn because of the whole wool thing.

Those are beautiful colors - and it looks like a ton of yarn with just that one alone!

My offer consist of two part of a set:



First there is a cabled wrist bag, made in DROPS cotton viscose. The yarn is shiny and pearl gray. It has a black felted handle. It is lined by hand in a light fabric. The bag contains a small surprise Smiley None of the colors in the photos is true, its just plain gray, without blue or yellow in it. If youre curius you can find pic of the color at the official site
(http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visgarn.php?garn=CottonViscose)


(forgive the angle, I was hanging out of the window, trying to get a good shot Cheesy)
Here you can see the lining:



The second part is knittys wisp shawl. It is make of DROPS alpaca, dark gray. I chose alpaca instead of mohair because of warmtharound 130 cm. It is 37 cm wide. It has eyelets around three edges and 4 buttons around the last, so you can wear it any way you like. The two first pic is from when it was a WIP - the edges wasnt properly blocked. Its more even now. The last is a close-up of the four buttons. They are dark purple, and I you could exchange them if you dont like the color.
