So, I spent a recent Monday evening dyeing yarn. I needed the jolt of color because this whole New England winter thing is getting old. Every time I go outside, I brace myself for the chill that is coming. I would say that I miss DC and its much earlier spring, but I think DC has had more snow this winter. So, umm….maybe not.

But onto the fun stuff – the yarn! It’s more sock yarn than I could use in a year (I’m a slow knitter), so I’m offering it for sale. These are smaller than the 100g skeins that sock yarn usually comes in, but I just finished a pair of monkeys for my size 9 gunboat feet and they were only 68 grams, so these might actually be a good size. Prices include shipping anywhere in the U.S.
