Yarn Pr0n Friday!

Hello all, and Happy Friday! I don't know about you, but this has been a long week. I spent the first half of Wednesday thoroughly convinced that it was actually Thursday. So needless to say, I'm happy that it's finally Friday! And I have pr0n!

Here we have a pile o' Knitpicks Elegance, which is a blend of 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk. The color is Barn Red, although I think the color is much warmer than what I would consider barn red.

The yarn is so scrumptiously soft, and I just can't wait to work with it. The majority of it will become the Cinnabar scarf from Magnits (for me) and the rest will tranform into a hat. I haven't made a final decision on which hat I will knit, but it will most likely be Grumperina's Odessa.

So although I really had every intention to stop my constant yarn-buying fixation, I find that I've placed several orders recently. But I have plans for everything I've gotten - I just got some Lorna's (which will probably be the subject of next week's pr0n) to make a scarf for hubby for his birthday, and my mom recently requested that I make her a hat, and she wanted a specific color, so I had to order some yarn for that. But I really do plan to stop purchasing yarn for a little while - at least until I've finished some of these projects. I need to start showing some more FOs on this blog! Hopefully I'll have some for you very soon.

That is definately warmer than a barn house. Maybe it's a barn house at sunrise....or sunset. :) I just ordered a bunch of yarn from knitpicks today! woohoo!

o, that's way pretty. And it's perfect for that scarf.

And now that I see that yarn, I want to make your Odessa, with beads, from THAT yarn. It would be SOoooooo pretty.

Boy, I need to get on yer hat already.
