Yarn Pr0n Friday!

Today is the first official day I'm participating in the Yarn Pr0n Friday ring. I've decided to feature the lovely yarn that Jen sent me last week as part of Knitty's SP7 round. First up is the luscious sock yarn in beachy colors.


This lovely item is a skein of Mama-E's C*EYE*BER FIBER sock yarn in the sand & skye colorway. The skein is 400 yards/130 grams of soft warmth. It is one of my favorite color combinations with the blues and browns. I will use it to make myself a great pair of socks - I just have to decide what pattern to use.

This very pretty pink yarn will be turned into my very first lace project. It is 825 yards/60 grams of 100% extrafine lambswool. There is a sticker on the ballband calling it Lacey Lamb. The rest of the band in written in Chinese. It is so very soft and fine. I'm really looking forward to trying lace knitting and using this yarn. I'm going to use the Print O' The Wave Stole from See Eunney Knit. Thanks to Angie for suggesting it.

Mmm....very pretty. I like that combo of blues and brown too. And that pink, looks like it'd be really soft! Nice job on the pr0n!

IIRC, the yarn shop owner said Lacey Lamb is made by Jade Sapphire, who also makes yummy cashmere, so that explains why the merino is so super soft. I am not sure it's lambswool though. :)

Love the pink Lacey Lamb... I have this yarn in cream and in black. I'll be doing the Print o'the Wave Stole in one of these colors, eventually, since it is on a long list of "to do's". Can't wait to see the pink in this project.

That is such a wonderful pink, it's light without being "baby" pink...can't wait to see it turn into lace!
