Yes, it's raining. In Texas in August. Black magic, I tell you.
They're done! I put aside my other projects this weekend and worked constantly on these bad boys. For research, of course. I can safely say that in the somewhat near future, you will start seeing some self-striping yarns in the shop. If you have some colorway/character ideas you'd like to see on self-striping yarn (or regular yarn), leave your suggestions over in the Ravelry group.

I have to admit, while working on the dye process of these, I wasn't sure I was going to go with dyeing any for the shop. After knitting these up though, I realized the appeal of self-striping, and decided it was worth the effort.
