This is a public service post for the people who read Christine's blog, specifically the one where she showed the watermelon yarn I sent her.
Unfortunately, KnitPurlGurl doesn't have anything in stock right now. She does take a lot of custom orders and then dyes them up. It takes a few weeks, but is worth it.
She has done a new one called Toadstool. It's all sold out, but it's worth sending her a PM on Etsy to see if she can make you some.
Oh, dear heaven. She's also doing Easter bunny and Easter egg yarn.
She did Valentine hearts as well.
There's also Christmas Confetti.
You can check out all her stuff by clicking on the Sales link.
Now, a funny thing happened when I tried to find this in Ravelry. When I put in "self-striping" in the Yarn search box, many things came up. Including this one. I was quite surprised, because it seems to me to be virtually identical to the Abi Grasso (KnitPurlGurl) self-striping yarn.
Apparently Frseshile Fibers also does self-striping watermelon and kiwi yarn.
Now, I don't know whether Freshile Fibers and Abi Grasso use a computer program which charts the self-striping repeats or what. But it's interesting to me to note that they both have virtually the same product. Freshile Fibers also does it in a bunch of different yarn bases. Freshile Fibers is located on Manitoulin Island. I know not where that is.
A further hunt on Ravelry reveals Sknitches with some self-striping candycorn (blech) yarn in a limited edition:
Hmm. No photo of this one knit up, but if you check out the projects on Rav, there are several other limited edition self-striping yarns such as Liger and The Creature from the Black Lagoon. They're pretty straightforward striping.
An interesting one is the Socks for All Seasons kit.
Interestingly, none of the Abi Grasso self-striping watermelon yarn shows up on a Rav search for self-striping. But it's there.
So for those of you looking for the Watermelon yarn, your choices seem to be Freshile Fibers, and Abi Grasso (aka KnitPurlGurl). If you want an interesting selection of regular striping in neat colourways, check out Sknitches.
For those of you who read the Panopticon, Franklin Habit just showcased some very cool self-striping yarn by GothSocks. There was supposed to be an update yesterday at 11:00 am PST, which is 3:00 pm Halifax time. Nope; I'm a dolt. The update is today. You still have time. There are no actual photos of the skeins on the website yet. But if you want to see how they stripe up, check out the Panopticon pic.
