Fiber Friday, April 11

My Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Showers lace yarn sold out within 5 minutes on Etsy last week, so I made 2 more. One will go up later today on Etsy, the second to follow when the first sells.

Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Showers

After doing clouds, I needed some rainbows, so here is a full study of the genre! All of these are on my favorite base, a Superwash Merino and Nylon blend sock yarn.

Tropical Rainbow - Sock Yarn

Tropical Rainbow - These started out as pure primaries, allowing mixing in between.

Color Wheel

Color Wheel - I used more standard red and blue here, which led to a darker green and purple.

Rainbow Sock Yarn

Faded Glory Rainbow - I used the same dye stock as Color Wheel, except now they were murked up a bit, and the base yarn was dyed a pale yellow.

Fall Rainbow

Harvest Rainbow - This one is my favorite, and will be impossible to replicate exactly, as I used the same dye baths as above and the base yarn was a weird pale green color.

Cinnamon Fern - Sock

Cinnamon Fern - Just for good measure, I threw in this study in greens and browns.

As usual, these hand dyed sock yarns will be listed on Etsy and ThePaintedTiger.

I need some viewer input you like the previews? Would you rather the yarn/fiber actually be available in my shop when I post my Fiber Friday posts? Do you say 'Wow, I've gotta have it', and then forget to check back on Monday (when the yarns hit ?
