Swatch-tastic!




Here's a quick couple pics of the test swatches Erica whipped up for me of the "Wicked" and "Wallachia" colorways from my On Broadway series, and Globe Trekker series. Love it!!
 
I've got a big order coming, so I hope to post the All Roads Lead to Rome series in its entirety on the shop, soon! Also, sock club sign ups will start in the next couple weeks. More info on the details of the sock clubs in the next post. 

Update: I've also added a pic of the sock project Aquaknits is working on with the "Strawberry Shortcake" colorway. It's turning out super cute! :)

They look great!

I only have one (hopefully helpful) comment/suggestion/observation...some fiber-zealists are really particular about their purchases, and might get made if they see any kinks in their yarn from previously being knit (by swatches). That's probably why there isn't a lot of swatch pictures on Etsy with the colorways.

I'm not all that picky, but I'm just letting you know...because some people would return yarn from it having kinks from being wound into a "cake" and then back into a skein.

Enough said, I can't wait until our swap. I'm getting the "itch" to dye up some more colorways! Ah!

These swatches were knit up by the buyer after she took them home. I didn't swatch and sell :)

Oh that's a good deal. :) That was nice of them to swatch!

Thanks! :) They were so sweet to work up swatches for me to see, once they received their yarn. I can't wait to see the finished projects with these! :)

Lovely swatches! The colors are gorgeous.

thanks! :) I've mailed out more yarn to recent buyers and some of them have agreed to do swatches for me on their new purchases. I'm always so excited to see how the colorways will knit up! :)
I'm also very excited to see how Aquaknits' socks turn out; it will be the first "official" FO of my colorways! :D
