Hopefully you have seen my version of Tin Can Knits' Vivid Blanket. I dyed up lots of colors, wound them into 90 yard skeins and kitted them up. I love doing projects like this because it's so satisfying to get a square done. And then you want to do another and another ......
So, I decided to dye more "mini-skeins" and sell them individually -- if you want to make the blanket, you can choose your own colors. Or, if you are doing a project that requires small
amounts of lots of different colors, this would be a great way to buy yarn.
I'll have the yarn for sale at the Garden State Sheep Breeders Show Sept 6-7 at the Hunterdon County Fairgrounds along with plenty of other hand dyed yarns and roving.
Here's a pattern I just wrote that uses 8 different colors of the mini skeins -- you could probably make 2 or 3 cowls using this yarn.
