Yarn Pr0n Friday the 8th!

Yeah, I figured I'd stick with same title format for Friday's. So y'all know what this is all about. Heh. Whatever. So, looks like Trillian42 is the only one paying attention lately. Surely someone can beat her - right Bezzie? Stephy? Come on now. You can at least do better than Rain (ahem). I swear I didn't put many trick questions in there. Just, tricky, yeah tricky is the word. Anyway, on with the show. After all, y'all are here for the pr0n right? Today's feature is Plymouth Royal Bamboo in Color #40 - Shrimp. That's right, shrimp pr0n. Heh. As with all pictures posted on this blog, you can click them and see larger, higher definition pics. And there are a nice bunch of pr0nny shots in my Yarn Pr0n photo set at flickr. Have at it. Plymouth Royal Bamboo 1 Plymouth Royal Bamboo 2 Plymouth Royal Bamboo 3 Plymouth Royal Bamboo 4 This stuff is oh so soft. It's knitting up nicely too. A little squnched (yes, squnch is a word in my world) on the 9" needle, but bigger ones are on the way from Webs, along with more yarn for the shrug portion of this pattern (featured in yesterday's new project post). So, here's a look at the way this is knitting up so far, check the stitch definition on it. Lacey Camisole Stitch Detail Lacey Camisole Plymouth Royal Bamboo WIP Lacey Camisole If any of you have been wanting to work with some bamboo yarn, this is the stuff I'd reccommend. Sure, the SWTC version has more yardage in a skein, (250 vs 93) but this stuff is, well, round for one. If that makes any sense. It's more yarn-like as opposed to tape-like. And it's yummier in the softness category. It is on the splitty side to work with, but I have a feeling that's more due to the tips of the Balene needles than anything else. And with that, I leave you with a contest. I have 3 balls of this in a creamy-white color. A perfect score on my quiz (from the first time taking it, not a redo cheaters!) will win you the bamboo yarn. Have at it kids.

Okay, random does NOT work on quizes. At least I got 2 right, ROFL. (and I thought yesterday was Friday, and was fully disappointed to not see pr0n then, lol).

buttercup said...

I only got one right! LOL! I'd narrow it down to 2 answers and then pick the wrong one - every time. hee hee!

Better read your archives.

That is knitting up so well and it's such a beautiful colour. Knit faster woman, I want to see!

Bezzie said...

Man I suck. I totally suck at taking tests! (Plus Chunky was NO good at helping me with the answers I didn't know!)

But mmmmm...I sure do love me some soft (bamboo) shrimp pr0n!

Do you think a panda would look at you all lusty like if you wore this shrug and cami to the zoo?

Donna said...

I love that color! I think our LYS sells that yarn. I may have to try it.

Squnch is definitely a word. It's sort of like scooch, except scooch is used when refering to people. I believe squnch is only used for inanimate objects.

80% The bamboo yarn was quite motivational. But I failed, alas. *sob!*

I bet Trek cheated. ;-)

Areli said...
