About a month ago B from Karma Kitties dropped me an email asking if I could overdye some yarn she'd bought which looked very different in person than on her monitor. I was happy to help out and told her to send it on over. In exchange for my dyeing services, B was going to send me some yarn from her beautiful and often coveted stash.
The package arrived yesterday but unfortunately not in perfect condition.
At some point in transit the package seems to have exploded. Luckily it's pretty hard to hurt yarn so everything seems just fine, even if covered in papery bit.
Here's a picture of the yarn in it's current state (I can't justify washing yarn when I have readings to do. I promise better pictures later).
To say that B spoiled me is a huge understatement! The yarn on the left is Araucania Nature Wool which needs overdyeing. On the lower right is Malabrigo in Amoroso (I loooove Malabrigo). Above it to the right is Sunshine Yarn superwash merino sock yarn (I've drooled over Dani's lovely yarns for a while now). The light blue/grey yarn at the top is, wait for it... Handmaiden Cashmere! B, you shouldn't have! But the best part, the pièce de résistance, is that unassuming green sock yarn at the top which arrived without a label and so I didn't know what I had at first. That, my friends, would be Sundara sock yarn in Pine over Gold (swoon!). Sundara's yarn is hard to get ahold of for anyone and it's especially a challenge for Canadians when shipping roughly equals the cost of the yarn itself.
B, I don't know how to thank you for these beautiful yarns. I promise to do the best job I can to dye your yarn to a colour you will love.
