The Last Yarn Pr0n Friday of 2006

Yes, my friends. We have come to the last friday of 2006, thus the last YPF of the year. Too bad I did my "Best of" last week. Ah well. I do have something new for you this week. This is Joann's Sensations Bellazo Collection Petalo in the color Orange. Joann's Sensations Bellazo Collection Petalo Orange I got 15 balls of this stuff for $1.50 each. Who can resist at that price? I've already started a sweater out of it. Yes, I may end up looking like a muppet raped me, but this stuff is so soft, and the color so pretty, I have to give it a chance. Something simple, bottom up, yoke neck. Pray for this sweater. May it be a success. In the future, you may see new pics of yarn you've seen before. Why is that? Well, I've decided to try this "knitting from your stash" thing. Here are my yarn resolutions for all to see: My plan is to only by yarn in the following scenarios: 1) With the credit I build up working at the shop. 2) When I'm on vacation (souvenir yarn ya know) 3) If I get to go to any fiber festivals. 4) If I swap for it, or get a Gift Certificate to somewhere other then the shop I work in. I'd like to knit up what I have to the point where it all looks nice and pretty in the closet and shelves I have dedicated to it. Also, to finally knit up some Lorna's Laces, Koigu and STR. Once can only covet and pet them for so long. I'm already working on the last one. =) Hope y'all have a Happy New Year! I, unfortunately, will not be able to ring it in in grand style. I have to work on Monday. Phooey.

It looks like I will have to do all the yarn shopping next year :) I don't think it will look like you were muppet-molested :)

Muppet raping?!? OMG.. I just laughed so hard that I snorted.. and it was right about the time that somebody walked right by the desk at work. That is hysterical!

Zonda said...

Hehe...why do you say the bestest things when I'm at work and can't laugh!!

That is still gorgeous yarn!!

Happy New Year, and I'm on call so I have to behave also!! :)

Hope you have a nice albeit quiet New Years!

Can't wait to see the Muppet sweater! I bet it's going to be great.

That is a pretty orange color, it makes me think of orange sherbet… yummy

That soft orange-y color to me indicates that the muppet wouldn't rape you. He'd first seduce you and maybe even buy you dinner.

I think your yarn goals are totally do-able.

The yarn looks nice and soft and much to subdued a color for a muppet!

Good luck on the stash goals. I'm going to try it too.

Mmmm...fuzzy orange. Can't wait to see pics of the finished sweater. We'll just have to make sure to hide them from all those crazed Muppets!

Happy New Year!

Knitting from the stash, what a novel concept :-) I need to do that, too. But will I, I don't know if I have the will power!

CanalGal said...

Purty orange !! Reminds me of a creamsicle. Or is it dreamsicle?? Not sure.

Jo, what a cute baby in your picture!!!

Anna said...

By all means, work on the Lorna's, Koigu, and STR! I'm working on a pair of socks out of the Koigu and just LOVE it. I see you're still Yarn P*rn Fridayin'...I'll stay on the bandwagon too! :-D Happy New Year to you!

woop, orange fuzzy goodness. Looks like mini-Ripples, actually... *wink*

That Petalo is neat stuff! I found some this summer in the aqua/blue. My swatch came out so nice that I went on a crazed crawl of all the JoAnn's, scarfing up every possible ball of the stuff. It's in my stash. Of course. For the sweater I'll make "someday". But not knit. I already decided I want to do it in Tunisian Crochet (that's what the swatch was) because it made a really cool texture. Yours will knit up nicely, I'll bet.

Your resolutions sound really achievable. I don't think I could deprive myself entirely.

Look forward to seeing the muppet sweater.
