Dye, Woman, Dye!!

I’d like to thank you all for being so very patient whilst I dye my my heart out over here. I ran down some #’s, factored in sleeping and general over ambitiousness, and came up with a monthly Quota for Vesper yarn. I’m not telling what it is, just that you should be able to get your hands on some a little bit easier. Unless I’m out of town. Then it’s a free for all.

I’ve come up with a few new colors,

From Left to right, They are “Smoke on the Water” “Strange Little Mama” “Fire in the Sky”

This is a very dark colorway, I was experimenting. In the future, I will give the colors a bit more “Pop”

This one I Love, Love. Love. This is totally Carole’s inspiration. Her blog is Strange Little Mama. Go over and say Hullo!

Can’t have smoke with out fire right? I’ve though about these 2 for awhile now. Besides, everyone needs a little Deep Purple now and then. I like this color, but to me it’s very ROYGBIV. Crayon boxy, even. Let me know your thoughts on that one. I’m considering changing either the orange or the yellow to gray.

and… I’m having my first Give Away here at Knitterly Things! Since I no longer kool-aid dye, and have had the need to reduce the amount of junk I own, cleaning out the kitchen this morning, I though someone could put these to good use. I don’t use the squirt bottles anymore, either, so I’m throwing those in. Warning: They get leaky fast, but when your throwing around the dye, this can be a creative tool.

So, how do you get these? easy, first person to email me that wants them, gets them. msjuliaj AT hotmail DOT COM
send me your snail mail, and they’ll go out on Monday.

Okay, Koolaid’s gone! It’s going to Katie of Knits and Grits. Have fun Katie!!

    Ha. Carole told me she asked you to make that yarn. It’s purty! It’s almost just like my Socks That Rock! Check out my blog. I love it so much. I love the other two also. Yummy!

  2. Theresa says:

    I wouldn’t change Smoke on the Water at all — it’s gorgeous and subtle and its usually pretty hard to find sock yarn that falls into that category. With some green instead of the purple, it could almost be a “manly” colorway — which is one of my great quests given that I have guy who’s very picky about the color of his socks!

  3. Liz says:

    I’ll take one of the Strange little Mama and one of the Fire In the Sky. hehe.

    Seriously…I love love love the new colors. Even the darker one is really nice. Nice job!

  4. Lauren says:

    I like them all very much. Maybe the Fire in the Sky could get a purple-y color to its mix?

  5. oohhh.. they are all so very pretty! Don’t change a bit : )

  6. Chris says:

    Oh, I like Smoke on the Water as it is, but I would also like a variant with more “pop”…

  7. carole says:

    ooooh, I love it! So pretty! I can’t wait to touch it!! lol
    Thank you again!!

    I love your new colorways, and I am really looking forward to trying some of your yarn!

  9. Marsha says:

    And I’ll take smoke on the water and strange little mama!!

  10. carole says:

    also, I just looked at scouts STR and while it’s sorta similar, it’s got way more black and bright pink. I think the slm will have a more “delicate” look all knitted up. LOOOOVE it!

  11. Sandra says:

    oh my god, all of your new colors look absolutely amazing. i am PRAYING TO GOD I can actually get my hands on some of that yummy yarn this time around. *fingers crossed*

  12. yahaira says:

    I love them all, esp strange little mama with the pink ; )

  13. puppymomma says:

    I like that Strange Little Mama colorway. What’s a girl gotta do to get yarn named after her, huh?

  14. anmiryam says:

    I”m all for fire in the sky — though a variant with a little purple or grey in place of some of the yellow would also be a must have. If you keep coming up with colors I love I’m going to run out of room to store all this stuff until I can knit it up.

  15. Debbie says:

    I love all the new colors as well as the old colors!! I’m knitting with knit and tonic right now and am checking back daily to get some more. It is absolutely my favorite yarn to knit with – please mam, could I have some more?????

  16. emmy says:

    I am looking forward to your new yarns and hopefully seeing them up close and personal!

  17. Wendy says:

    I can’t wait to get my hands on them!

  18. Christy says:

    I’d love some of the Strange Little Mama! How cool is that?

  19. Anita says:

    Just wanted to let you know that I got my yarn and I love it. I cannot wait to finishh my current project and start something with my new yarn.

    The new colors are really nice too. Perhaps, a black and gold combo next!
