I *Heart*

These cones came from yesterday. I'm on vacation this week but I have my orders sent to work. On the way back from Romni I passed by the office to check if the order had arrived. I am so pleased that it did. Unfortunately, the colours in the pictures are a little off. They are about as close as I could get them. I know they are in the plastic for the pictures. I tried taking them out the first time and the pictures were even worse than these soI decided to try with the plastic bags. Much better but I need to learn how to manipulate some photo editor much better than I can at the present time. This is carnation and chartreuse. I think the chartreuse is a little lighter than it looks here.
This is the coral and the buttercup. My first reaction to the buttcup is it was way more yellow than I was expecting. I love love love the coral. Again, the pictures don't do them justice.
This is the fawn. When I saw this colour I thought it was a lot lighter shade than I had thought it would be. Colour pictures from a digital camera are a funny thing. I don't know the mechanics of it all. I just know if you use a flash with certain colours it will look totally different. That's why I love my Casio d.c. so much. It makes taking pictures without a flash very easy.

When I was looking at this yarn yesterday I realized something. I started reflecting on the Knit From Your Stash 2007 and how I've done so far. First, I am going to take the countdown off my side bar. I think I will change it to something else. However, I think because of the KFYS I have definitely not bought as much yarn as I would have otherwise. I think if this is done again in 2008 I would have to exclude lace weight yarn along with the sock yarn. I can't resist a good buy on lace yarn. But then again, maybe that's why I should keep it in there so I could learn some restraint. I tried. That's better than not giving it a shot at all. I still have the summer to go with this. However, I have had my proud moments. For example - I went to Romni yesterday to pick up the crochet hook. That's all I bought!!! I actually went to Romni Wool and walked out getting change for a $5 bill. When has that ever happened? Never before yesterday!!! Don't think I wasn't tempted. They had some yummy dyed laceweight tencel in a blue/purple colourway that has my name written all over it. But I left it there. I don't know how I did but I did. I probably will go back and get it at some point in the future but I resisted yesterday. I'll take this one step and one day and one decision at a time.

    Your yarns are beautiful.

    What kind of yarn is this? I would love to order some myself.

    The yarn is Silk City Supramerino. According to the label it's 100% mercerized extra fine merino wool. It is very fine with 7,500 yards per pound. had it on their website beginning June 26th but it sold out in under an hour, I believe. Keep watching their site because they might bring it back if they can get their hands on more of the stuff. You never know. Hope this helps.
