Hand-Painted Self-Striping Yarn hat kit with the self-striping part in earthy shades of yellow, grey, and brown, and the accent yarn in 2 skeins (enough for two hats!) in a lovely variegated blue-jeans shade (lot 121505). Super-soft merino yarn (50 g, 176 yds ea). $25 for all, postpaid. Further explanation: The hideous bright orange stripes are just scrap yarn. The strip in between was machine-knit and then dye painted on. You unravel it and knit with the-now-self-striping yarn. When you intersperse it with the other yarns, it makes a beautifully patterned hat (well, two). Here are her kits with two swaths of machine-knitted yarn that you dye yourself and then unravel and knit together. Note that my kid makes 2 hats... and is already dyed! PENDING

Payment: Money order (email me at wearpurple at mac dot com for address) or PayPal to the same address. I'll mark your desired yarns "PENDING" until shipped. Enjoy!
