Umm, We Still Dye Yarn, Right?

With all the fun n games of the Anniversary Quizzes going on, you may ask: “Are you still finding time to dye yarn?” (No, that is not an anniversary quiz question – no ballot for answering that.) Well, Yes. A few loose seconds here n there…

Here’s a few newbies to throw into the mix.  First, some yummy Merino Cashmere. Second, a wack o’ squishy DK Merino. Enjoy!

Email indigodragonfly.K AT to place all orders.  A PayPal invoice will be mailed to you that includes airmail shipping (or surface mail if you’re in Ontario).  For further information, see the bottom of this post.

The Anniversary Contest Question O’ The Day

We’ll answer yesterday’s question tomorrow…keep you hanging a little longer.

Today’s question (First 3 correct answers get an extra ballot!):

Which Hollywood actor is Ron distantly related to?  (His last name is Newberry-Evans.  I’m not sure that will help you.)

a)  Mandy Patinkin

b)  Ian Ziering

c)  Dan Ackroyd (by the way, Ron thinks he looks like Dan Ackroyd…this is how he described himself so I could find him on our first date.  I thought he was someone else for the first 10 minutes.)

d)  Matt Leblanc

e)  David Soul

f)  Colm Feore

g)  Martin Short

h)  Michael J. Pollard

i)  Dann Florek

j)  Wendell Pierce

k) Brad Pitt

If you’ve arrived here for the first time and have no clue why we’re asking these crazy questions, you should know that we’re running an Anniversary Contest!

The Anniversary Contest runs until August 4, at which point we will have a very unique drawing for the prizes. There are four prizes available:

1. The last remaining first Smart-Ass Knitters/World Domination Club package

2. A cable mug by Susanne James and a skein of either silk lace or merino sock yarn (your choice of in stock colours)

3.  A Darby Bayly project bag chosen by Otis, a skein of MCN Sport (in your choice of in stock colours) and a Storm Water Cowl pattern.

4.  A Tom Bihn Little Swift and 5 skeins of your choice of Indigodragonfly Yarn.  (Thanks Darcy, Tom and crew!)

So how do you enter?

Lots of ways.

1. Leave us a comment, and you get an entry (1 comment per day per person)

2. If you were the very, very first customer, you get an entry. (I know who you are, you don’t have to. )

3. Answer weird quiz questions. They will be random, both in their timing and their content. We will give entries to the first 1-5 correct answers (depending on how we feel that day…we’ll give you fair warning), either in the comments or by email. (If you leave them in the comments, quiz answers count as an entry in addition to your comment entry…are you confused yet? Good. We like you that way.)

4. Buy stuff. Heck, why not? For every $25 purchased, you get an entry.


To purchase any of the products, please send me an email at indigodragonfly.K AT (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which yarn(s)/gear you would like, where you live and whether you want it shipped surface or air mail. First email request for each yarn/fibre/project bag secures it. I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off within 3-5 days. Shipping charges to the US will start at $5.44 for surface mail and $7.70 for air mail. Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval.

Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked). I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps. Custom orders (including dyeing or overdyeing your own fibre or yarn) are always welcomed! Just email me with what you have in mind.

  1. Total guess, but I’m going to go with Michael J. Pollard.

    I am totally coveting your merino cashmere. (I would look GREAT in a “held my breath” sweater!) I just wish that my stash wasn’t already desperately needing to be used up rather than added to.

  2. oh oh oh – I’m gonna go with Martin Short!! (I would have been here 4 hours ago but last night the furnance and hot water pilot lights both died – still not sure why but that was a wee bit of a distraction . . . good thing it’s 25 here today. And this is just “urban camping” right??) Glad to see you’re keeping your focus!

  3. Mandy Patinkin, because for some reason he has come across my radar 4 times in the past 2 days. Which is a lot for him.
    “I Held My Breath Too Long” would look great in my stash too! But I’m going to knit furiously while visiting home in order to make room for it.
    Have a great weekend!

  4. I am guessing Mandy Patinkin. I have no idea why but that’s my guess.

    BTW, I love the colors in ‘Who microwaved the crayons?’ I love the funny title too.

  5. Since I haven’t a clue, I’ll have to go about this systematically and try to identify the characteristics you would find most appealing in a mate.

    First of all, he’d have to be funny – and that rules out David Soul and Ian Ziering (intention counts) and probably Colm Feore (yeah, he’s hawt, but without humor that can get grating). Second, he’d have to be smart, or “wicked smaht” in my local vernacular. So that cuts out Matt LeBlanc and Brad Pitt (sorry, Brad, sexy isn’t everything!). Third: Hello good-lookin’! Now, naturally this is a very subjective area (believe me, I married a short man with a weak chin and heart o’ gold), but I’m gonna go out on a limb and lop off Michael J. Pollard and Dann Florek – and maybe even Martin Short. That leaves us with three talented, intelligent, funny, yummy guys – Mandy Patinkin, the aforementioned Dan Ackroyd, and Wendell Pierce – from whom I shall select:

    Dan Ackroyd.

    (I know, that was a long way to go for the obvious, wasn’t it?)

  6. It’s only logical that if someone thinks they resemble Dan Akroyd, but when you’re looking for Dan Akroyd you don’t think it’s them, then they must be related Dann Florek. Ask Mr. Spock if you don’t believe me.
