Thanks for another great update, folks! Your next option to catch some gobsmackers is at indigodragonfly’s Highlands Fibre Fling, just outside Haliburton, Ontario, on 18 August. Hope to see you there!
This update includes some brand new bases (camel/ silk lace, Cabra giants) and a few real oddballs. The oddballs are yarn bases that I tested; they’re perfectly lovely yarns, but turned out to be too time-consuming or finicky for my dye process. So if you’ve been hankering for some alpaca-silk sportweight or the like, better get ’em now! In honour of the oddballs, the names are inspired by a variety of obscure words, in English and in other languages. Once you’ve snagged your yarn, try giving the names a quick Google search; you might find something fun.
To claim a gobsmacker, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) letting me know the name of the cake and the base. The first person to claim a cake gets it. Things can be pretty fast and furious at the beginning, but I promise I’ll email you back to let you know whether you got what you wanted. Once the dust starts to settle a little, I’ll follow up with a PayPal invoice; if you haven’t ordered from me before, please include your mailing address (and phone number, if outside Canada).
Please remember that colours may vary across different devices; if you have any questions or would like a verbal description of colours, just ask.
