Peacock Colorway Available,

--May 1, 2013--Update: Just 4 skeins remaining!

It's that time of year again!  Balticon is almost here...time to dye the Limited Edition Balticon Colorways for this year.

But first, I had this colorway that I've been dyeing to create (see what I did there?).  And amid starting to work on the Balticon colors I decided it was time...because when you are up against a deadline is always the best time to do an extra project at the same time. Right?

In case you can't tell from the colorways I've produced in the past, my favorite colors are pink, purple, red, and turquoise.  So, I'm not really sure where the idea to do a peacock inspired colorway came from, but it's been burning a hole in my brain for a while now.  If you follow me on Pinterest you'll see a number of peacock images that I used for inspiration.

I wanted to have the rich, deep blue of the body and head combined with the colors of the tail.  At first, I was going to design the skein so that it was more than half deep blue and then put the tail colors all together. But, doing that would have meant that it striped every other row dark blue with the other colors sort of spiraling in the rows in between. And, I may end up doing another version of these colors like that sometime in the future, but it wasn't exactly what I wanted this first time out.

What I really wanted was spirals of the rich blue alternating with the tail colors.  I used a sapphire blue, teal, turquoise, yellow-green, and a steel blue-grey.

What I got was the following:

Due to the interest I've had in this colorway since before I even started skeining the yarn, I made a double batch.  That means I have a dozen skeins available on a first come, first serve basis.

Pricing is as follows:

1 skein $24
2 skeins $46 (save $2)
3 skeins $67 (save $5)
4 skeins $88 (save $8)
5 skeins $110 (save $10)
6 skeins $120 (save $24)

Shipping is $3 for 1-3 skeins anywhere in the US, $5 for 4+ skeins anywhere in the US, and $10 for international shipping for any number of skeins.

If you will be at Balticon and can wait to take delivery until then, no shipping charge.
