The yarn that I never was able to photograph for last week’s yarn report . .
The most interesting, at least for today, is the Skinny Bugga. I like this yarn because of the interesting names and because of the content. I will hardly use 100% wool any more to make socks. This yarn has 10% nylon and it has 10% cashmere. The added cashmere sure makes a difference in how the yarn feels.
The colors: In the back – Proprietary Roaches. Left to right. Two Wonderland’s Caterpillar, Crown of Thorns Starfish, Jungle Nymph, Eurota Purple Wing, Green Huntsman and Spanish Shawl.
Four skeins of Skinny Bugga in Fluorescent Millipede. This will make a lightweight sweater . . not real sure which pattern I’ll use. There are several in my queue that will work but I’m leaning towards Current.
Trinity Worsted by Sweet Georgia in the color “Lucky”. This will be used for Lipstick.
Tanis Yellow Label in the color Truffle. I will make Amaro with this.
These three skeins of Malabrigo lace were intended for three separate shawls to be used as gifts. I was going to use the Blooming Shawl pattern, but seeing the three colors together, I love them and might search for a project where I can use the three of them together.
Colors are . . top to bottom: Butter, Purple Mystery and Frank Ochre.
There was one more skein of Hollywood Cerise to make a cap for Addie once I make her sweater to match Nicole’s Carabe.
Looks like a whole lot of fun yarn, huh?

What a lovely “Box of Fun”. I especially like the Millipede and Lucky colorways. Now to get busy knitting it up! ;0)
Yarn makes me happy! I started spinning now and of course I now have also started dyeing the the fiber and yarn. I guess to a lot of people it’s silly but I am really having fun, and that’s all that matters. So I say ENJOY!

What amazing names for yarn. Someone has a wonderful imagination and vocabulary to use just the right wording. I wonder if you would buy the yarn if it was called “yuck blue” or “dirty brown” or “gross green”! I know how much my purchases can be influenced simply by the name of a product!
If Vince wanted to save money…and MAKE money…he could write a computer program (that could be secretly installed by husbands) that would translate the names of yarn into horrible names! Would it work on you?

I just love to let the beautiful colors wash over me! I love color. There’s a lot of happy knitting in your future:-)
