Yes, I do too know what the word tomorrow means...

And I know it has been since before yesterday that I have been promising Peasy pictures.... But there it is! I don't know how far I have gotten, but I am pretty sure it is not 22cm. CM. Not inches.... And that is still more purple than it really is. I don't know what I am doing wrong with the photos. I am motoring along as fast as I can, because I really want to get this off the needles!! I am DYING to start something else lacy.

Especially since I got this in the mail on Wednesday:

It is four skeins (despite the fact that there are only three visible, just take my word for it) of Alpaca Cloud from Knitpicks. The color, dill, is discontinued. I loved it, though, so I took advantage of the fact that I could get an entire large shawls worth of yarn for only 15$. And so far, it totally lives up to my expectations! It is soft as a, well, cloud. It is the perfect oliv-y color. It is dreamy. And I am going to need it.

Because I have joined 10 Shawls in 2010 on Ravelry! I had already done the Citron, sadly unphotographed, and the Swallowtail. Next, Haruni! I love that pattern and can't wait to wear it!! Wish me luck.

Score! That is gorgeous yarn. I was seriously considering doing the 10 Shawls in 2010, figuring it would give me a fun goal - I might do it informally... who knows? I'll be impressed if I get ONE done, since it appears I am going to be knitting baby hats until hell freezes over. /the Peasy looks lovely - yarn is sooooo tough to photograph and get the color right. I'm geeky enough that I work with it in Photoshop until I get it as close as I can, but still tough. xo

PS - verification word is "ovedgie." giggle

Beautiful! Glad to see someone else has problems photographing purple too! Mine always photographs as like, deep royal blue for some reason, and I end up having to tweak it in GIMP to get it even close to the real color.
