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. 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. 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.
