Lots of Yarny Stuff (and a Sale)

I have a new sock yarn base (which I love) which I think I've mentioned before. I have just started dyeing it and I have decided to put all of my older sock yarns on sale for 25% (or more) off. So check it out in my Etsy shop.

I also have a brand new colorway called Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me which was just listed in the shop today (but is on the new base yarn and so is not on sale).

I also listed another new colorway a couple of weeks ago which I never mentioned here called Browncoat--I think it's my new favorite colorway of mine. (That may be partially because of the name, which is a reference to the canceled tv show Firefly and the movie Serenity.)

It sold today, though. I will be trying to get a new one in the shop this week--dyed on the new base yarn no less.

I took a picture of a few of the newly dyed yarns to show off.

From left to right they are: Nightswimming, Valentine Michael Smith, Superhoney and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me. The Superhoney looks a bit washed out next to the others, but it doesn't really look that pale in real life.

Liz, these are beautiful yarns! You don't seem to have any problem naming your colorways. I sure do and only give names to my rovings to keep them organized.

Lovely colors! (and I knew right away what the name "browncoat" referred to! :) i'm a big joss whedon fan!)

Thanks everyone!

Maple, I sometimes come up with the names and make the yarns from there--it's easier. But naming them is half the fun for me.

And yay, Joss! :)
