The colorway is from Nachomama. The trim is from another dyer. I think they matched perfectly. The pocket is supposed to be an owl.

These are by far my favorite longes we own. The colorway trumped the colorways I alrady own.

Turn around time to receive the dyed yarn was super fast. The colorway is shiny and beautiful. I didn't have to do any yarny gymnastics to prevent any pooling.

I have yarn from several different established dyers. They are all beautiful. I think Nachomama's are equally proffesional and beautiful. I would definitely buy from her again.

I may need a third skein. I am working on the legs now. Hopefully I will not.

Here are my finished first shorties. They aren't great, but they will work.

Re: Gauging interest in hand dyed yarn testers

WIP with the rainbow stripes yarn. Started on the solid colors (was going to use the black for trim for the rainbow colorway and then decided to just do that one as stripes) so its just the waistband. I needed to figure out how many rows are in a medium soaker before I start doing stripes so I'm doing a medium soaker in just the rainbow colorway. I LOVE how its knitting up so far

Re: Gauging interest in hand dyed yarn testers

I know you contacted me earlier about yarn since I had some interest in it, but couldn't meet your requirements of getting it knit up quickly, and wasn't sure what i wanted. I know have a shirt I need yarn to match and can knit it up quickly. Let me know if you still have space. Thanks.
