There was no plan, at least that I was aware of, when the little pots of dye began to gather in preparation for this batch. After being presented with what was there, the mixing and calculations sprang into my mind, and I have to admit, I am completely blown away by the sheer beauty of these skeins. After seeing them drying, one of my knitting students ordered up a batch in our Beautiful DK base in order to knit a baby blanket for her up-coming grandchild. We can't think of anything more precious all the way around.

I've got my eye on these, and it's only because I'm trying not to be greedy that I've released them into the wild. That and the fact that, yes, technically I can dye up more!
