Yarn Pr0n Friday II - Electric Boogaloo
Yeah, I know I've used the whole "electric boogaloo" thing before but hey, it's funny. Anyway, this last weekend, Tvini and I went on a road trip. You know what that means...SOUVENIR YARN! This is Hilo, Creatively Dyed for You in "Grape Vine" Admittedly, I see no grapevine in this per se, but it does remind me of the rolling hills of grape vines that all around the Finger Lakes in NY where I went to college. Particularly in the fall. This stuff is so soft too. Dianne from Yarns Forever also sells her hand dyes HERE. As she says on her blog, she's getting better at this. Not having seen her early stuff, I'd have to agree. The base of the yarn I bought is Kona Superwash. It's so soft! It reminds me of Mountain Colors Bearfoot in the softness to the touch. She uses other base yarns as well but I can't recall them off the top of my head. And yes, that first pic in the upper left hand corner - I fucked with the colors in my photo editing software. The others are more accurate, but that one gives you a really pr0nny feel. See? Feel the softness. Mmmm....sock yarn. Edited to fix the name of the dyer. Blame my mistake on Tvini.
