Relieved and Disappointed

Or disappointed and relieved. Hard to tell which order they're happening in, but I do know there isn't room for much else in my brain tonight.

So, rather than dealing with reality, I set up my brand-y new HP printer/scanner dealio, and played around for awhile.

It turns out that my scanner does a much better job catching color than my camera does, but obviously it's a little less accurate in terms of dimensions.

Those are the cable rib socks from Favorite Socks, and the yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Seduction in the color "Blue Brick Wall".

Oh my but I love this yarn. It's 50% wool, 50% tencel, and it feels so soft and strong and silky. And the colors are exactly how I feel today. A little morose, a little under the weather, but still strong and vibrant. Somewhere underneath it all.

I nearly bought that exact yarn at the LYS last week. If it hadn't been tencel I would have. I once knitted a merino/tencel blend and very much didn't care for the feel of it running through my hands, although, the Blue Moon blend felt a lot better than that particular one from I-forget-where did. Love the colorway. Had it been pure merino... Now I may have to go back and dither again. Gee. Thanks, Kristine. Hmph.

Blue Moon Bambu, colorway Rock Creek. Came home with me from the knitting group at the LYS last night (they didn't have it in Blue Brick Wall).

Kristine said...

They had the Bambu one?? WAAAAH!!! That one is not on the website.

I'm going to go cry in my corner.

Wait, Seduction is in the corner.

Okay, I'm over it. :p
