Tip-toe Through The...Daffodils?

Yeah, I'm seriously running out of clever titles for Yarn Pr0n Fridays. Fortunately, Bezzie's got me covered for next week (having alerted me to the upcoming Friday the 13th a while back) then I can continue with the number format. Today's feature is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in the colorway "Daffodil". I bought this (just like last week's feature) when Zonda came down for a visit. I laid my eyes on this colorway and knew I had to have it. I tried to be good and not buy anything but I couldn't resist the charms of the Daffodil.

Could you? I mean, take a gander at this stuff. Doesn't it just make you smile?

Don't you just want to hold it for a while? Maybe go frolic in a field of wildflowers and sing about how you'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony? No? Oh, well, me neither. A-hem. Moving on.

You know, all this lovely Lorna's and Koigu that I have in my collection, and I have yet to knit with any of it. What's wrong with me? What am I waiting for? Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock YarnWell, after I finish the Anastasia Socks, I'll pick up the Purple Club I bought from Little Knits oh so long ago and make the next pair of Christmas Socks. Since they're for a particularly hard woman to please as far as fit goes, I'll be doing your basic 2x2 rib sock. Unless y'all have better suggestions for a guaranteed-to fit sock pattern. Bring it on. On another note, all these mosaics that I post? All from Flickr Toys and I highly recommend to you Flickr users to download the Flickr Uploader to upload more than 6 pics at a time. Believe me, it saves me a lot of time. Remember, if you want to join the ring, first - lemme see some examples of your pr0n somewhere on your blog. No pr0n virgins please. And if you don't have pr0n to post due to technical issues (including "I forgot") then please, post a pic of mine from my Yarn Pr0n Photoset (do not upload to your own host, just use the code as is and be sure to credit me). Best to recycle than to not have anything for the ringsurfers. Now - click the ring! (But feel free to comment first - I like comments, they put me in my happy place.)

Ohh! Very nice there!! I love the happy turtle shot...so happy for YARN! I'm learning the photosets. I'll need one especially soon. Since I already had most of YPF drafted before I saw this, I'll try that next week. Thanks!

Faerynuff said...

Very pretty!

As for the Fleece Artist - I'm not sure what pattern to use, something with a touch of lace maybe?

After you left your comment on my blog, I posted a link to the Sock Wars sock pattern - it's a rib, but looks fancier than it should given how simple it is (K3P3 alternating with K1P1). The pattern is for DK weight, but it should be easy enough to do the conversion.

I'll say hi! I just posted my first yarn pr0n Friday. @woo!

I have that LL color in their boucle yarn. The shop had it in Lion and Lamb too, and I was so tempted to clean them out of their 3 skeins (imagine the sheen on those colors - oy!) but decided to go the less expensive route. What do you think you'll use it for?

Bezzie said...

That turtle's enjoying his yarn pron a little too much! ;-)

I honestly have never been a big fan of Lorna's Laces (bought a skein and gave it away) but I LOVE that color!

stringthing said...

yummy yarn, i need to go find some sunlight to take my own yarn p0rn

Sourire11 said...

yeah for yarn p)rn!

Sarah said...

Oh I love it!

I really wish my LYS had more than 3 colors of Lornas. Meh.

Here's hoping Taos has loads of nice yarn and fiber to love!

And, nice wristwarmers!

aija said...

I love thr turtle laughing with the yarn one!! Like, they're having some great conversation and neither of them is going to be knotted into into smoe socks anytime soon! :)

Thanks for the flickr tool links, I love flickr so I'll have to try the uploader out.

KnitMongrel said...

Dude, I can't tell you how much I've been coveting that color... so pretty! Looks like you might be having an affair with Lorna's too - can't keep my damn hands off it, that's for sure. Happy YPF, and thanks again a million times for setting up this ring!

mf said...

ohhhh nice yarn porn! Great yarn!
those wristwarmers are cute too!

Bobbi said...

If I didn't love Fall so much it might make me wish for spring! Can't wait to see it knitted up. Since you approved me you probably already know this - I caved and joined yarn p0rn fridays!

kgoodrow said...

Pretty pretty daffodil yarn. I want it! Oh that's right I already have 4 hanks of it since every time I see it in a store, I feel myself inexorably drawn to it and my credit card being whipped out.

Mary, Mary... said...

You're right--such happy colors all in one skein. Aren't you glad there are so many lovely people who are willing to professionally hand-dye yarn?;)All you need is a Maypole!

springyknitting said...

The daffodil yarn is gorgeous and definitely worth the purchase. You have to knit it soon, don't hide it in your collection!

knitting-cat said...

Your turtle looks like she is having fun... Love P0rn Fridays

cpurl17 said...

I love how the daffodil is lovingly cradled in a towel. Pretty yarn needs to be cuddled.

(I'm not sure what's wrong with Bezzie. How could she not love the Lorna's?)

String Bean said...

Ooh, I love the LL Daffodil! That turtle looks like he's thoroughly enjoying himself.

Pyewacket said...

That swinging turtle makes me smile.

Hey, I'll swap that pretty LL for some cheapo KP! ;-)

Just kidding, but I did send you e-mail.

J.P. said...

I love that colorway of LL! I can't wait to see what you do with it! :)

Rain said...

That is divine. Talk about cheerful yarn.

Much turtle cuteness too, love the one on the swing.

Pam said...

Oh, the turtle looks like he is loving the LL!! I still haven't tried that yarn, but it is on my list!

Annie said...

Gorgeous yarn!! And the turtle does look happy, but who wouldn't, with that lovely yarny goodness??
