I have these two skeins of 2 ply laceweight silk, see. They were part of a small sample order early on in Serendipity Fibers. I didn’t end up carrying that yarn, so I ended up with leftovers.
So here are two 3.5 oz skeins of 2- ply silk yarn in a very fine lace weight, approximately 1090 yards each- undyed.
Here’s what I’d like. If you want some custom- dyed silk laceweight, go out on the web and find an image that has the colors combinations or concepts you’d like in your yarn. (I recommend Flickr, but use what makes you happiest!) Copy the url, and paste it in the comments. This is straight- up Random Number Generator to select winners. I’ll be posting the resulting yarns as I handpaint them and again when they’re finished.
I’m really excited about this one, actually.
Okay- comments close at 1600 (4 pm) eastern time, 21 March 2008. Good luck, everybody!
Edited to add: on the ISO/ Destash forum on Ravelry (where, apparently, this sort of thing is verboten? What gives?)— someone expressed a little confusion over how this works. I don’t know if this will make it clearer, but I hope so! Here’s an example. This yarn was inspired by a few weeks I spent in the woods outside of Spokane, Washington.
Does that help?
