So Reid's Romper is ready to be released. I have gone over it with a fine tooth comb, over and over again. I think its ready. Monday is the big day and I'm really excited. I decided to post a last minute $3 off yarn coupon for that day too, plus an auction for a custom dye job, and two pattern giveaways. I admit its kind of fun to watch the store traffic spike.
I'm slowly starting to dye up the new bases. I tried the Dolce BFL first, and dyed "Full Bloom" which is a really gorgeous colorway everyone seems to like. I also tried dyeing twice as much yarn, probably shouldn't experiment so much all at once in the future. But it worked out fine. I changed the color repeat a bit though, and so it has less brown than usual.
Also the new image reflect the change in my yarn photography. I'm really enjoying taking the round bowl shots.
Next I dyed 3 skeins of Eos Merino for my husband's vest gift. He doesn't follow the blog (though he should :P) its going to be his holiday gift. I'm going to attempt at reworking the Julian vest pattern to fit adults. It was my first time working with Eos and wow it did not disappoint. The yarn is as soft as clouds. I kettle dyed it with shades of moss green, going all the way from very dark to very light and some silver. Hopefully I will have some pictures to show soon.
