Oxidizing

by ysoldateague November 20, 2011 2 min read

The Oxidize hat pattern is now available to purchase as a pdf, on Ravelry and on the website. The pattern will be part of Whimsical Little Knits 3, which we’re working really hard on getting to press. However, since it isn’t quite there yet I don’t want to open up pre-orders. At the same time I don’t want those of you who think you’ll want the whole book to have to wait for Oxidize so I thought we’d try something new. Included in the pattern is a coupon code that will give you a 25% discount on the book when it comes out (note that this will only work if you’re using the same Ravelry account or email address).

By wonderful coincidence I’m writing this post sitting in the dye studio at A Verb for Keeping Warm, where the yarn featured in Oxidize was dyed. The blue is indigo dyed which is an incredibly fascinating process, it isn’t like any other dye. I was going to have Kristine write a little about it, but then I realised I could record video with my camera so it seemed like a fun idea to record her giving a little introduction. It’s a little dorky and poorly edited but I hope you enjoy it.

 

If you’re interested in this really unique yarn Verb are offering a coupon for 15% off of the Slick yarn (which does come in a range of other beautiful, naturally dyed, colourways if the indigo blue isn’t your thing). To receive your discount enter the code “ysolda15%” at the checkout. This offer is valid through the end of December, perfect for holiday gifts. If you make the shorter version in the smaller 2 sizes you can even make two from one skein. Or, if you prefer the two colour version, you can make two hats from one skein of each colour. It might be fun to do fraternal twins using a different MC for each hat.

We’re also working on something secret with the indigo that I’m excited to show you in a couple of months.
