lovely new yarn


I ordered a book from Pierre the Yarn Snob and received not only the book but a lovely surprise as shown in the picture. Its colours are so lovely and fresh and springlike. I've wound it and weighed it and re-wound half into a second ball. I'm thinking simple toe-up to see how far I can get. I do have some patonyle in white which I could use for heels and toes.

The colour is not quite right in the photo. There is more of an aqua tone to the wool, a bit like the photos one sees in touristy magazines of people snorkelling on some island at an expensive resort. I've tried fiddling with the photos and can't get it right so have given up on it. We need the rain, so I won't complain. The weather is funny today. There are very heavy dark clouds, sudden showers, brilliant sun, sun showers. The photos were taken in that fresh greeny yellowy sunshine which sometimes comes immediately after some rain. In another minute it was pouring again.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love the yarn Terri sent me, it's probably a good thing I don't live there...I'd be "yarn poor"! It is beautiful and so is the yarn you are posting!!

Lucky you! That is really pretty yarn. Reminds me of a spring field just after rain. :o) Thanks for saying hi on my blog. I am also late on the sock 'biggest hits' band waggon. I probably won't do jaywalkers, but have just cast on for pomatomus. I'm only about a year too late. :o)
