What you see here, my friends, is the end of the white yarn.
I've dyed 829 skeins to date, or rather since I've kept track for the Sock Summit.
Thing is, I'm running out of yarn, and I still have colors to do. Somewhere in the fivehundreds, I got carried away with a Royal Purple I did in honor of Meg Swansen (still fighting with the camera to get THAT color right). Then I had a really good day where I did a nice bright red, and reds are hard to get right, so when I did, I dyed a whole bunch.
Then I did a tally and an inventory of my colors are realized I am missing some good colors. More yarn is on the way, and this weekend will really be the last dyeing marathon before everything has to be shipped out.
Let me show you two more Luminary Colorways today: this sunny yellow is a color I've had in the line-up before, and I am now dedicating it to Cat Bordhi. She is one of the brightest knitters I have ever had the fortune to meet (well, besides Lucy Neatby and Nancy Bush and Beth Brown Reinsel and Candace Eisner Strick and Norah Gaughan...) <>
This one is for the Knitting Anarchist, Anna Zilboorg; somehow I've always pictured her in black...I'm probably wrong. But I LOVE this new color, where I dip the ends of the yarn in a bright turquoise first, and then I kettle dye the whole bunch in black....no picture in the world will do these justice.
