UPDATE: The first Not Really a Club colorway will be listed on Friday 3/30 around noon.
I know several of you are waiting for the February FO post. Allison has been extremely busy doing exciting things in non-blogging realms and will return here soon with both February and March's posts.
If Sundays are for blogging (at least sometimes), then Mondays are for dyeing. Today I'm dyeing up I Love Rock 'N Roll and Dark Knight for my own inventory and for a new shop order. I'm also playing around with colors for the new club colorway.
I mentioned recently that I was looking for input on how I did clubs. The near-unanimous vote was that the next club should be Not Really A Club, but an advance ordering system so you know exactly what you are getting. Or as close to exact as you can get when you're talking hand dyed. Here's the plan:
- I will dye up a sample of the color on a few different fibers or yarns and list those in the shop. I will then take orders for a set period of time (probably 2 weeks). Once the order period closes I will order the undyed yarn and fiber and start to dye. 6 weeks later I will ship your fiber or yarn. Shortly afterwards the whole cycle will repeat itself.
