Y@rn P0rn Friday . . . Stitch n Pitch Edition

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done Y@rn P0rn Friday.  Since projects haven’t exactly been flying off  my needles and onto my blog, I’m thinking Y@rn P0rn will 1) give me something to post about and B) help inspire me to knit up some of those lovely yarns in my OMGsoFlippinHuge modest stash.

Today I’m taking the easy (lazy) way out and showcasing the yarns I received in my Stitch n Pitch goodie bag.  After all, they’re the newest yarn and therefore not buried in the recesses of my stash.  (Say, speaking of Buried, have you seen the trailers for this movie!!  Wow!!!!  Limited release in select cities today!  In theatres nationwide on Oct. 8th.  SEE IT!!  Confession time: My good friend's husband wrote the screenplay.  But it seriously looks like an amazing movie - and who wouldn’t mind seeing Ryan Reynolds on screen the whole time?)  Ahem, back to the yarn talk . . . I also needed to take pictures so I can add it to my Ravelry Stash page, making the yarn a no-brainer for YPF.

Enough chatter.  Let’s get to the P0rn!!

 Mmmmmm . . . . looking yummy.  Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Three . . .  count ‘em . . . . THREE lovely skeins of zealana eco (yes, that does say 20% possum) in a lovely brownish purple shade named 112.  Because nothing says brownish purple like the numbers 1, 1 and 2, right?  Funny thing is the website lists color names but not numbers.  I'm guessing my skeins are boysenberry, or perhaps dark earth.

And two gorgeous hanks of AslanTrends Glaciar Del Cielo in a very pretty pinkish colorway descriptively named 2655.  Although it is also called Orchid on the web-site, which makes me happy.  I like to know actual names of my yarn colors, as opposed to the numbers.  I’m demanding like that!

So there you go.  My newest pretty yarn.  Next week, maybe I’ll highlight an older skein that’s Buried (shameless plug again!!) deep in the bowels of my stash.  Any requests??

I'm with you--I like my yarn to have a sexy name rather than a number. That is some yummy stuff you've got there!

I just told Chris he was part of a Yarn Porn write up. And he turned about sixteen different shades of red. ;)

Thanks for the shout-out, Karen!! xoxo

Pretties!! I love that shade of pink. My LYS has been carrying Zealana; very soft stuff.
