Birthday pr0n

G'day all!

I thought I should blitz you with some sock yarn pr0n. After all I won't be buying much yarn soon!

Hmm, let's start with the yarn I bought at a recent sale and hid (most cunningly under a pile of clean washing and mending) for a couple of weeks.

A new Online sock yarn. There were a whole range of colours that I thought very pretty - grassy green, pink, turquoise, and look what I walked away with:


Yep, GREY! ME! Choosing a yarn with a grey background. I just thought the the colours poppedreally well out of it.





Then there was some (new to me) Araucania sock yarn called Ranco Multy. Anyway, it looks very pretty, 75% wool, 25% nylon so it should be tough. It isn't machinewash though.


Do you see that colour? Brown! OK, brown with some green and blue and golds and reds in it but brown. Me? I must be mad!




This one might be a little more what you expect...




Yep, safe territory there - blues, reds, greens, purples, all sorts of colours in between. Much more what you expect of me, eh?

There is more. A bit more. Actually quite a bit more. 8-)

I should show some knitting I've been doing but that requires photos of it. Admittedly it has just become a thousand times easier to download photos. In the recent relatively disastrous upgrade of my computer, one thing that did start working again is that it now recognises the camera and actually will download photos! Before it would say, "oh there is a camera there," and I'd be like "well download the photos" and it would be like "what camera? It doesn't speak my language so I'll just ignore it." But now? Plug it in and let it rip! Hooray! Now I can put more photos online rather than having to download them via DH's laptop and upload them onto my computer and yadda yadda yadda....

anon!
