Yarn Pr0n - Hot! Wet! Soapy! Ooh La La!

So, earlier this week, rosi g. (i.e. "The Soapy Knitter") asked me to make her an avatar. She joked that maybe she should just stick a skein of yarn in a bathtub and take pictures. Heh, that got me thinking. So, thanks to some Herbal Essences, a candle holder, and a shallow sink, we have soapy yarn. I used Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille in the end. But I started out with "safer" stuff. Like Sugar 'n Creme and some Caron acrylic. Then I thought better. Rosi is awesome and deserves a better quality of yarn, even if you wouldn't really be able to tell in a 60 x 60 avatar. So I busted out some Anny Blatt superwash wool (the one in the bottom right) and then the chenille. I figured it's going to be used for facecloths anyway, so no true harm could come to it. I shot it on the best quality my camera could produce, and sent her a link to a flickr photoset to take a look at what I'd come up with. She liked them so much, she asked if maybe I could come up with a banner for her blog. I did. (I still have one thing to change on the font - so it's not up yet over there). So without further ado, true yarn porn. Naked, wet and soapy. Soapy Yarn!
