Clara And More

My to-do list for the weekend included updating a few pages on the website - a simple enough task.  Somehow I deluded myself into thinking this would be a quick update, and I completely underestimated the amount of time it would take.  

In all fairness I did encounter some technical difficulties with my computer.  Timing is everything.  I knew my computer was on the brink of some issues.  I only wish it had waited until after the update to start acting up.  I was resourceful and sorted it out, but the bottom line is the update really cut into my weekend knitting time.  And this time of year every minute of knitting time counts.

On to the good news.  I'm delighted to announce the addition of Clara - a 100% Blue Faced Leicester, worsted weight yarn.  This yarn is soft and lustrous with just a hint of a halo.

This base takes dye beautifully and produces rich, deep colorways. Clara is available in large, 250 gram skeins - perfect for bigger projects.

Speaking of larger skeins . . . for the fall shows I offered Edna Extra - the 250 gram version of the popular Edna yarn.  It was so well received that I decided to make it available on the website.  This DK weight yarn is a blend of Polwarth wool and silk.  It's a dream to knit and creates a lovely fabric.

Finally, just a reminder that Dirty Water DyeWorks offers gift certificates, available in any amount.  Whether you're shopping for others or making your own wish list, you can't go wrong with a gift certificate.

And now I'm off to make up for lost knitting time.  Wish me luck.
