Instead of trying to buy yarn that’s impossible to get a hold of from rude people, I found yarn that’s just as pretty and sold by a lovely friendly woman who got back to me within an hour of me sending her a message on Etsy.
Elaine at FabFunkyFibres dyed this up just for me! Usually she offers this colourway on brown, but was glad to dye it on a black background for me when I asked. Add in a mini skein for cuffs, heels, and toes, and voila! Super fast shipping and the yarn is lovely, bright saturated colours and great to knit with. I was so happy with my yarn I ordered another two skeins (in different colourways) from FabFunkyFibres the other day, so I definitely recommend Elaine to anyone looking for hand dyed self striping sock yarn.
Picture of the WIP to come. I had a slight (total!) setback that had nothing to do with the yarn and everything to do with my own pickiness, so right now it’s only a cuff…1
