New Sock Yarns

And here they are, soon-to-be-released sock yarns. They will be going up on Etsy during the next couple of weeks. I am so, so happy with the way they turned out. Who knows, some of them might not make it to the store – they might be diverted into my slowly growing stash!

Really, though, I am even more excited about these sock yarns because of the amazing events leading up to their completion.

I had planned to place a large bare sock yarn order early in October, but the website said they were out of that kind of yarn and they wouldn’t be getting more in until the sixteenth of October. I was leaving home on the twenty-first of October, so even if I ordered them on the sixteenth and rushed the shipping on them, I wouldn’t have had enough time to dye them before I left.

Well, I happened to check back on the website a few days later and the yarns were already in! Way before they were supposed to be. And third day shipping was really not that expensive, so I ordered a bunch of them, thinking I would make time to dye them as soon as I got back from my lovely trip. Lo and behold, time opened up and they were finished before I left! Praise God!

    How well I remember, and miss, the smell of drying yarn!

    Well, at least you miss it. I personally don’t even notice the smell of the dyeing and drying, but I’ve had complaints. :)
