Lord Oberon's SunriseTaken from his favorite photo of the sun rising, which he'd never have been able to snap unless the car had broken down. Worked on the silver shot base this is an extended sunrise... can be done on as few as 8-9 skeins.
Moonrise Dark on Silk Sock
HAPPY DAYSWorked in 50 gram skeins, there's a 100g skein in blue that didn't make it into the photo. This was based off of a few bright minis I made, the customer then filled in the blanks and it made this smashing mix.
My ThangWhy My Thang? purple, blue and green are my all time favorite colors, I had to paint them. Here the green is teal with blips of bronze to it. They fade slowly in and out of turquoise and into deeper blues and finally purple. This will make a nice sized shawl with the 2 50 gram skeins and the b/o edging will be worked in the final 20g skein, just over 1100 yards here. 7 at $4.47=31.29 2 at $9.95 $19.99=$51.28
Daisy's in the Sky
A customer ordered this for their Bar Maid so it's shown here in worsted weight but would be fun in a variety of mini's as well.
From the recent contest we have our lovely bird on mini's.
We can focus on less green, more purple as you wish anything goes. Shown here on 10 skeins of 20 gram minis.

Multi color gradient lace
We paint our multi colored skeins in dots of color so that they blend better then a large patch of color will. Patches will make large pools of color when knit up. We aim to blend our paint well so that there is little work for you.

MOONRISE This color screamed to be painted on silk sock but it can be done on other bases. I just felt this was an excellent fit. Skeins can be varied as you wish. Due to this having to be hand wound it's a bit more expensive. There are 3.5 skeins here (437 yards each) and the winding comes to $102.
|Moonrise Inspiration Photo|
Shown here on Medium Sock this too can be worked on any of the bases. Set as it's shown has 6-50g and 2-20g skeins but can be done up in any variety, $75 1564 yards as shown.
Shown here on Silver Shot Sock, this requires only some reskeining. We carry the 20 and the 100g so the 50 gram has to be reskeined. These are 435 yards at 100 grams and there are 3 full skeins and 2 - 20g skeins in this creation. You can have any work up you'd like though. This one needs another 20g between the purple and the pink... possibly 2, otherwise there's a hard line there, which was intentional but can be erased. As is, yarn is $76 and the reskeining fee is just $10 total of $86 for 1570 yards of silver shot sock.
The buttons for the above skeins don't exist, to order PM me at wmdress at sbcglobal. net
Made for a very large shawl this has 12 skeins of 50grams each.
The 20 gram skeins can be used to make this blend more through from the orange into the red and then the red into the green. We need about 2 skeins between the red and green to make the transition. Fun though.
CUPCAKES For these sets we developed a new washing technique which makes one skein very similar to the last due to the new method.
We use our Medium sock yarn in 20, 50, 100 gram (92, 260, 460 yards) $4.50, $9.50 and $20) skeins to make exactly the yardage you need in your blend. We are using them as repeatable color bases and will redye any that you'd like. 6 skeins of 50 grams are only $59 for the set. Or mix and match to get the yardage you need.
A call for a flamingo brought forth this new color way.
Ya'll know how in love much I'm in love with the waters of the Caribbean. Washes from pale turquoise to dark turquoise and then into teal.
I adore this one! For years I've attempted to catch a sunset, here I have finally caught the part I adore,,, the color of the sun as it falls onto the clouds. Washes from a pale pink through subtle oranges into a deep golden.
Limes At Midnight Originated from a custom order but loved it so much that we added it here. You can change the chartreuse into any color you'd like.
Chocolate Covered Cherry's
Our Peeps loved this color so much, we had to include it here. Going from a maroon cherry into the bark of the tree.
The vampire we all know and love from the Ann Rice novels. Going from true red through purple into a purple with a touch of black added for the dark night.
BLARNY And where would the world be without a bit of Blarny? Washes from pale emerald, darker through to teal into a blue teal which is more blue then teal.
I love me some summer berries, don't you? Beginning in pink we travel through maroon and end in the deep dark purple of the Logan berry.
