It’s wonderful having friends, isn’t it? I agreed to dye some yarn for an old and dear friend. She wanted garden colors, like cornflower, persimmon, and a bright yellow, with some greens and robin egg blues. And then, she wanted a sort of mulchy, rusty color. Um, ok.
After much experimentation, her skeins are ready. I liked the result so much I did a few extra for myself — I seem to have caught the Clapotis bug and I’m wondering if the skeins of superfine alpaca and wool blend that I dyed would knit up into a nice one.
Also (if I know y’all, you were waiting with baited breath for the yarn for sale part), if has dawned upon me that in just two weeks there are going to be TV cameras filming in my workspace. The sad truth about my studio is that there is SO much going on down there that I can barely walk around. I have got to do some serious organization and clean up. And, I need some space. So dear blog readers, just for y’all, a free shipping coupon that will let you snap up any of the yarn (and other items like journals, roving, felted purses, collages, playsilks, etc) on my website without paying shipping. Please come and help me make some space, ok? Use code 4120666 at www.elliebelly.com for free shipping. Coupon is good until my studio is clean.
