Re: Gauging interest in hand dyed yarn testers

Wow, really excited at all the interest! In fairness, I think I'll let original posters who meet the criteria (familiar with HC yarns and going to knit this up fairly soon) take first dibs. If they haven't popped in by tomorrow afternoon, I'll start pming newer posters. Does that sound fair? I"m new to this whole tester thing!

Gorgeous orange semi solid. Love love love it! I've worked with most bases and dyers over the last 2 years and prefer worsted and dk weights. I'm excited to see a new dyer emerge!

Re: Gauging interest in hand dyed yarn testers

Got it!

Here's some pics of the latest finished products (all taken with flash because they were finally dry later this afternoon. I was too excited to share to wait for tomorrow's natural light.)

Tonal blue for omahonycm

I'll be winding these into cakes tonight and shipping them out, along with a wool wash tester, right away.

Re: Gauging interest in hand dyed yarn testers

mama, your work is amazing! I'd love to test if you need more testers.
I'm itching to knit up a NB romper with purewool.
