It's a really pretty pre-Spring day here, sunny with mild temperatures, so I decided to take my Wollmeise out for a picnic and get some better pictures than I've been able to so far. So here are a bunch of pictures, including some old skeins and some new skeins. Here they are, in no particular order. Enjoy!
First, the box o' yarn:
Next up, Honigtopfchen (top) and Single Malt (bottom):
Here's Brombeere, my very first Wollmeise skein, from The Loopy Ewe sometime last year:
Digitessa, a gorgeous dark red:
Petit Poison No. 5, dark intensity:
Farn, a new arrival,and appropriate for Spring and St. Patrick's Day:
Here's Rosenrot (rose red):
This is Terra de Sienna, I think it's light intensity, but the notation on the label is unclear. A kind Raveler provided me with this one:
Here's Versuchkaninchen II, from Raveler Faith, part of an exchange for some laceweight. I love this color! It looks much better in person than it does on the website:
Another new arrival, Amazonas. Very intense!
Der Letzte Versuch (this one I may trade):
I'm still trying to get a good picture of this one. It's Sundig und Verrucht, and that color with the black is an intense violet. It's not as blue as it looks here, but this is a better picture than last time (some of this in laceweight should be here soon, too):
And finally, two different skeins of Poison No. 5, both medium intensity. The one on the left is from the trade with Faith, and is much more lilacy than the one I just got, on the right, which is more of a fuschia color. I love them both, but I think I prefer the one on the left:
Nice, huh? I still have a little more coming, with blue colorways and the new Ebenholz (ebony). Don't worry, honey, almost done...
So, yesterday was crappy what with the cold and grey and microwave issues. Today it's sunny and nice, Wollmeise arrived, and I picked myself up some more Artisan Confections chocolates (new flavors - Kirsch caramel and coconut caramel, mmm). I prefer days like today :)
