Balticon Update (Again)

I have good news and bad news. Which is which depends upon your perspective.

The first news is that I have sold out of 4 of the 8 colorways. Empress Sword, Girls' Rules, Phoenix Rising, and Pirates are gone.

The second news is that I still have 1 skein of Gearheart and multiple skeins of Spectyr, Fiends, and Mine. 

These last skeins are priced at $20 each. If you are interested in any of these, simply drop me an email. The address is Dyed Bright Here (no spaces) (at) gmail (dot) com.

Balticon Update

Here's an update of the availability of the LE Balticon colors for this year...

The first colorway to sell out was Empress Sword. Apparently, you all loved the swirling mixture of greens (representing the Dragon) and the pinks and blues (representing the Princess/Prince) as much as I loved the story and creating the yarn. Thank you!

There are currently three colorways that I am down to just one skein of each left. They are (from top to bottom) Girls' Rules, Phoenix Rising, and Pirates seen here in swatch form.

Thank you so much for your support! I can't wait to see everyone there. Don't forget to stop by the Yarnaholic Tea on Saturday from 2-4!  I'll be bringing more yarn goodness!

Get 'em while they're still here...

Thank you to all who have already purchased some of the 2011 goodness that is the Balticon 45 LE colorways. I am humbled by your support.

I promised updates so here we go...

At this point, Empress Sword, Girls' Rules, and Phoenix Rising are nearing extinction. There is just one skein remaining of each of these colorways. So, get 'em while they're still here...

It's Balticon Time!

Balticon 45 is just around the corner. The idea to create special limited edition colorways began last year as a crazy brainstorm. I truly love those "What if..." kind of moments. Originally I was going to try to create colorways that represented genres. The idea morphed into using various written and podcast works written and/or broadcast by people I knew (or would be meeting) at Balticon. Last year I did 5 colorways. This year, there are 8!!

You can see them all individually on the Balticon 2011 page.  I have knit swatches out of each of them. They all have their own personality and are truly unique individuals.
When I create LE (limited edition) colorways I only dye a certain number and once those are gone, they will not be heard from again for at least a year or two...most likely longer. For a yarn shop, that limited run might be 15-30 skeins. For Balticon, it is 5. Yup, that's it. Five. So, for that reason, I limit sales to just one skein per color per person until after all the pre-convention sales are done. If I have any skeins left I will bring them to Balticon with me.

Thank you!
I am humbled by the words that my friends write and grateful for the inspiration that they give me; not just at Balticon time, but throughout the year. I have been blessed to meet, get to know, and call, 'friend' some amazing individuals. Their support of my creative endeavors and of me as an individual has helped me get through the darkest times I could never have imagined and helped me grow as an artist and as a human being.

Thank you in advance for purchasing my yarn. Your support means the world to me. I would love to see any pictures of things you create with my 'babies'.
