Hey Kids! Do You Know What Time It Is?!

It's Yarn Pr0n Friday!!! Didja really think I was going to leave you with the one measly shot of the Mountain Colors that Ali got me? Heck no! Here it is in all it's pr0nny glory. Mountain Colors Firestorm 5 The colorway is called "Firestorm" and no where on the label does it say "Barefoot" or however it's spelled. It says "4/8's Wool". The skein is 100% Wool and 250 yards. It's so soft. I was thinking socks but since it's not the Barefoot, I feel like I have the freedom to do whatever the heck I want out of it. And you know what? Screw my neck and head sensitivities! I'm making a scarf! I need a scarf, and I've put up with the Alpaca when I've had to wear it. It may itch me, and so may the Malabrigo scarf at the shop when I wear it, but hey, it's not so bad. And I want something scrummy and warm! Not cotton! So suck it up I shall. Now. The question remains, what pattern? Mountain Colors Firestorm Mosaic Yes folks, another parking lot shot from my car as I rolled into work. Sue me. It's dark when I get home from work, and was foggy as hell when I got up. But the morning light was still good enough to get a nice yarno out of it, eh? And I still don't have my camera cord, but as I was reading through some blogs on Wednesday some brilliant soul mentioned downloading them via their printer. I thought, "Hey! I have some of those porty things on my printer, lemme see what happens when I slide my memory card in one!" And lo and behold, it worked! Yay! Now I don't have to cart my cord back and forth. I can leave it on my home computer. Sa-weet.

Have you considered lining the scarf and hat with polar fleece? I dunno if it gets cold enough where you live, but it would solve the itchies and let you still wear handknits on your skin.

Are we talking decorative scarf or for-warmth scarf?

Those GB scarves in their newsletter looked kind of cool. I know that Elizabeth's is easy to do and would work best with a pretty colorway.

I love those colors and giggled at you taking the yarn shots at work--I was thinking about doing the same thing in my office (I lucked out and have a window cube) but they already think I'm crazy here.

Those colors really are awesome!

And I miss being able to use my printer for picture-retrieval. Silly thing died on me...

Slip stitch on the scarf to show off the colors. Anyhoo, glad to see the pr0n queen is back in action. Hugs to you and Ripple.

I tell you what that yarn would be perfect for--Forest Canopy Shawl. It is a lovely, simple lace pattern, and the pattern specified yarn is one skein of the 4/8 wool. You can find it here: http://www.ma2ut.blogspot.com/
