OK, so I really, really try not to buy things out from under anyone when something special comes in the store. I figure that if there's a limited amount of something then the nice thing to do is offer it to one's friends before taking any for yourself. Heck, I didn't even get a Halloween Kit for myself this year (or last) before it sold out. But I really couldn't help myself in this case. The October Dream Club color is just so perfect that I couldn't resist. And I snagged two skeins just in case I want to make something larger than the provided free pattern.
If this wonderfully realistic autumn colorway is for you, then I don't recommend waiting. There is a limited amount available. It's even dyed on a wool/silk base that is new for Dream in Color, so it would make a luxurious gift for yourself or someone special.
The pictures of this pattern provided by Dream in Color shown here aren't true to the bags of yarn I received. The skeins I received look much deeper in color than this pictured scarf, which I'm thinking the light reflected off too much off the silk b/c perhaps the photos were taken outdoors on a sunny day. The colorway looks just like the single skein pictured at the top, but like all hand dyed yarn, your skein may have a tad more green/gold/mahogany/rust or any of the colors shown in the picture. But they are all similar, so if you are ordering multiples you will be able to use them in the same project, provided you smartly alternate skeins while knitting/crocheting.
October's color is now available, though if the link stops working then it's gone. After your order, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to be e-mailed back your copy of the pattern. Again, this is a special edition color so it could sell out quickly. I'll post again here or in the e-newsletter if there are some extras later in the month.
