It stands for
an independent dyer
Susan lives in Arizona
[we all know how much I love that State for all it's beauty]
The Internet provides easy access
to everyone [Me]
to Susan's online shop.
She provides GREAT SERVICE with special attention to my order that encourages me to go back for more yarn.
I got my shipment Pronto! ! !
I picked her Logo colorway with vibrant colors
in a lovely sock weight yarn of
75% Superwash Merino Wool
and 25% Nylon to add durability so these hand-knit babies will last a long, long time.
The great feature of superwash wool is that I can toss my sox into a zip bag and into the washer it goes.
I lay each sock flat to dry.
This is my first skein from Susan and could not be more pleased with my purchase.
With a helping hand from Hubby
we had wound that skein into two yarn cakes in no time at all
so that I could cast on for
Knitabulls Podcast September Self-Striping
Sock Knit A Long.
Diane's such a sweetheart.
[this is a great YouTube if you're interested]
and I'm on my way.
This method gives a rounded toe
with the increase stitches evenly divided
giving a star effect.
Well, this darker stripe does not show this,
but believe me it's a great lookin' star effect.
And so dang easy
I cast on yesterday afternoon
and was going great guns
until - - - -
I looked at my progress
then frogged back this much late last night!
Was enjoying the rhythm of the increases so much
that I made it waaaay to big.
No big deal.
It's only yarn.
Made up for some of the lost time already
it's not easy taking pics of one's self
This far along so far.
Now that I'm nearly finished with this post
I'll pick up my needle and knit on!

Our grass is greening up and our big trees' leaves have turned their faces up once more.
