    July Dyed-to-Order Colorways

    Hello, hello and happy July!

    The July dyed-to-order colorways are in the Etsy shop and available for pre-order now through July 8. This month I am reviving the Golden Girls-inspired colorways, along with 8 semi-solid favorites.

    Row 1: Blanche, Don't Feed the Bears, Water We Gonna Do; Row 2: Dorothy, It's Sherbet Day, Donkey Shane;Row 3: Rose, Whoa, Olive You;Row 4: Sophia, Pigment of Your Imagination, I Lichen You

    Dorothy, Rose, Sophia, and Blanche are vibrant splashes of pink, turquoise, green, blue, and purple over a natural white or dark ecru base color. These would work best as shawls, sweaters, hats, or in colorwork or striped projects. They would also make great socks....but! but! but! Just like all short-repeat kettle dyed colorways, these colors will produce fraternal socks rather than identical ones so be warned if you like your socks identical.

    Sophia and Pea Shoots, Pea Scores (by special order only) knitted in to the Canton Cowl designed by Tanya Thoman. Knit by me.

    All Hands on Deck Top Down Mittens designed and knit by me in the Rose colorway.

    grankaG combined knit and crochet elements in this wonderful sleeveless sweater that uses Sophia combined with a solid purple yarn.

    ThisGalKnows knit The World's Simplest Mittens by TinCanKnits out of a skein of Merino Worsted in the Dorothy colorway.

    8 coordinating semisolid skeins are also available - Don't Feed the Bears, Water We Gonna Do, It's Sherbet Day, Donkey Shane, Whoa, Olive You, Pigment of Your Imagination and I Lichen You.

    All 12 colorways are available as mini skeins on the Lovely Sock base, full size skeins on the Lovely Sock Base, MCN Sock, Targhee Sock, Sturdy Sock (corriedale), Merino DK and Merino worsted.

    Diya designed and knitted by Alison LoCicero from Don't Feed the Bears and a variegated colorway

    Walk the Miles designed by Casey Day-Crosier. Knit by me from the 66 Sunset Minis set and a skein of I Lichen You

    It's Sherbet Day semisolid worked up in to the Tied Knots hat by Justyna Lorkowska

    Thank You For Being a Friend mini skein set

    Episode 16 - Knit. Dye. Read. - a Knitting Podcast

    Knitting content 8:20

    Sewing content 20:50

    I did a *lot* of talking this week, but lucky for you I also edited out a lot of the jabber to keep things a reasonable length.

    One topic I mostly edited out, but want to revisit, is the topic of making clothes for ones body when ones body changes often. Plus, how to talk about making clothes for a changing body shape without inadvertently wandering in to a fat phobic conversation I am not ready to have. I need to collect my thoughts on a bit before talking about it again, but if you have any thoughts or resources on fat acceptance and clothing production to share then please leave them in the comments below.

    I also cut out an in-depth book review of Glamorie by Alice Starmore, which is why it is in the thumbnail of this video. I will revisit that book review in a future episode.
