Yarn Pr0n Friday: Karabella, Vintage Cotton

In honor of spring it's Karabella Vintage Cotton, 100 percent mercerized cotton. It's as soft as silk!

The lighting makes these skeins look like two different colors, but it's from the same dye lot. It's dusty pink - a kind of 1930s shimmy pink. It's almost still too cold to think about what tank top I'll make out of it. Any suggestions?

Not much knitting going on here. Just RPM using Sundara's Bird of Paradise.
I like the yarn. I think. I like RPM too, but not together. I'll probably frog.

Yarn Pr0n Friday: STR Monsoon

Blogger still sucks sometimes. It took forever to load these pix.

Had a really nice time with Saun and Olga last weekend.
I'm still amazed that I've made such good and interesting friends on the internet and through blogging.
Bought some yarn too, but I'll save it the next YPF.

Lost my Knitting Mojo

don't know what it is. I've been working on these Pomatomus mitts and though I've looking forward to wearing them, I'm really sick of knitting them. I've totally memorized the chart. I can put them down for days and figure out exactly where I was when I pick them back up. That's too much. I debated making gloves because I'm going to have lots of yarn left over, but I really don't think I could make it to the fingertips. I'm using Sundara Superwash Merino "Black over Plum."
It's really hard to take pix of opera length mitts on your own arm.

In the meantime I've finished these. Like the gloves, I finished them weeks ago but didn't get around to taking photos. Too cold to take my socks off. Not much comment about the Marble Arches. You've seen a gazillion of them. They're made of STR Pink Granite. Not much comment about the Monkey socks either. I like them, but don't feel the love like everyone else. I used Sundara "Gray over Periwinkle."
OK, I know I'm starting to sound whiny. The new STR Sock club yarn arrived and it's beautiful! It's shades of purple (my fave) and green. So far I can't get shots that do it justice, but maybe by Friday.

In the meantime I'll leave you with these designs from Sophia Kokosalaki found on
