Sonny and Shear

Yep! I'm selling yarn to a new online store, a great one called Sonny and Shear, The I've got Ewe, Babe Yarn Shop. My supplier is backordered on fingering weight yarn, grrr! But I did get some Sport Weight dyed and shipped out to Kris on Monday. There are sixteen skeins in all, 250 yards in each skein. They're a nice buttery sport weight. I'm using a new dye so I've managed to get some great vivid colors going.

I've been really inspired by those crazy Araucania Ranco Multi yarns lately. Their colors are just SO INSANE! Their skeins aren't reskeined after dyeing, but I can't stand not reskeining my yarn after it dries. It just looks so much prettier that way. The reskeining debate is actually a big one in the yarn dyeing field.

My electric skeinwinder has made the whole process a lot faster so really the most tedious part in the whole process for me is twisting the skeins so they look pretty. I have a hard time with that with my bum wrist, I've started using some metal size 13 knitting needles to hold both ends and that helps a lot.

Today I'm waiting for 50 skeins of Aran weight yarn to arrive today to dye up for Eat. Sleep. Knit. I'm hoping to have that done by May 1st. Hopefully! Hurry up DHL I need to get to skeining!
