- The monthly newsletter went out a few days ago. To recap, pre-orders are open for the next incarnation of the "not a club club" shipments. The theme is "Unbirthday"; My dyeing schedule has dialed back a little as we get in to summer, but I am waving the deposit on most special orders if you are looking for a particular colorway; and, Sifu Design Studios in Chicago will soon be carrying my yarns. YAY!
|Unbirthday (not rehanked) on the new (sorta) Super Ego sport(ish) weight yarn and on polwarth fiber|
- The tank top of DOOM is finally finished! It has been finished for a few weeks, minus the ends that need to be woven in. SO. MANY. ENDS. I've taken it with me to 2 knit nights and only managed to weave in 6 ends. Only eleventy billion more to go. It fits great, but the yarn is warmer than expected. This tank will be worn more as a vest than a tank.
|I love how fashionable Maggie M looks in the Tank Top of Doom, even though Mags and I are vastly different sizes. The trick is to gather all that extra fabric at the back with a hair clip. Voila! Instant figure.|
|I didn't intend on it being reversible, but after ripping out the bust shaping trying to save yarn, that's exactly what happened. I am very happy with this sweater. I may even wear it someday if I ever weave in the ends.|
- I am blogging again in my other blog, Lehcar Knits. I really miss blogging how I used to, combining both personal and professional. But as the business grows, Dyeabolical really isn't an appropriate venue to get absolutely ranty about sewing patterns, bad drivers or keyword searches, or so I'm told. Back to the old blog I go for that sort of stuff.
