Y@rn P0rn Friday . . . Discontinued Edition

Is it unfair to feature a discontinued yarn on Y@rn P0rn Friday?  If it is, then I’ll apologize in advance.  But I’m doing it anyway.  I received this pretty yarn years ago as a gift from Keohinani in Hawaii.  (Unfortunately, I don’t think she blogs anymore.)

Sorry for the dark picture, we've had very little sunshine here this week.
Zen Yarn Garden Merino Sock in the colorway Tuxedo Royale.  Although this yarn isn’t available anymore there are plenty of other pretty Zen Yarn Garden yarns to choose from!


The colors of this yarn remind me so much of a pink and gray phase I went through in Junior High or High School.  I vividly remember my favorite outfit.  Gray corduroy pants, a light pink button down shirt with 3/4 sleeves, and a pink and gray argyle vest in the exact colors of this yarn.


Too bad I don’t still have that pink and gray outfit . . . . because now I could knit some snazzy socks to go with it!

I got this great book out the other day from the library with knitting projects for snazzy scarves (am a big lover of being bundled up with nice knitted scarves in the winter). It's really sad, finding good quality wool these days is so difficult. I'm like you tho' - with beautiful yarns awaiting to be made into something! Off to search my boxes for my next project \\^^//
