This picture was taken early afternoon out in the back yard. The yarn does have a lovely sheen to it, but that seemed to be enhanced in the photos because of the sun.
I had company on this photo shoot too. Sherman decided to tag along as I tried different spots in the yard. He was a very attentive helper and even offered to model the skein for me. He does move around a lot though and he even tried to paw the yarn off his neck. I don't think I'll be using him to hold yarn anymore. He's much more suited to modeling completed projects.
I have two skeins of this beauty stashed away waiting to be knitted into something fabulous. I'm thinking it will be my first Clapotis from Knitty or the entrelac Lady Eleanor from Scarf Style. I've wanted to try both patterns for awhile.
I haven't been knitting much the last couple of weeks. Some of my family came for a visit and it is my busiest time of the year at work. We put on a large conference each year at this time and most of my other projects are due at the same time. But the good news is that will be over next week and I can get back to my knitting.
