Fiber Friday - Wollmeise Part II

I've decided to share some pictures of another skein of the fabulous Wollmeise sockenwolle. This lovely color is called Suzanne and it is 100% super wash wool. The skein weighs 150 grams and is about 574 yards. That could make some long socks!


All this sock yarn makes me want to cast on for a new pair of socks. But I've kind have been in a knitting slump. I haven't really been knitting much this week at all. I haven't really done any knitting at all since finishing up Wicked. Maybe it is is the heat and the idea of wool that are just not sitting with me well at this point.

I'm really trying to decide what project to pick up next. I've got my STR blanket that I could work on and then there are those pesky man socks. Those damn socks keep eyeing me from the bottom of the knitting basket where I tried to hide them. I really need to finish those up. If for no other reason than to release the needles that are stuck in them. Ah, I'll figure something out.

Those are some intense colores on this Wollmeise sock yarn. Beautiful! I've decided that I'm not lusting after any more yarn, because it never ends. I've got plenty and have to use it eventually! ;o) But you make it hard with your nice pics! ;o)

Ooooh, and to think Sheri had some of this on her website at Loopy Ewe this week, and it went in a heartbeat. It is so lovely. She said more coming in August. Beautiful photos!

Reading your Friday posts have helped me make some decisions. 1)I need a better camera 2)I need to move closer to you for photo lessons. Simply amazing shots - again.

Nghmph. Urgnl.

See that? It's what infatuation does to the knitter's ability to form coherent sentences.

I want that yarn!

Theresa said...

Pretty colors! But yes, I agree, it's hard to think of wool socks in July. :)

Ava said...

You are formally invited to my blog to see some selected Provencal prints for your viewing pleasure. While you are absent, I will virtually attempt to steal that yarn.

wonderful color- I hope the intensity transfers to the actual socks! Love it!

Julie said...

You take THE BEST yarn photos ever! It always looks like it's suspended in midair and the colors are so vibrant. How do you do it?

not to be an enabler, but if you really want to free those needles, then just slip the stitches onto some waste yarn and attach a note about what needles you were using, and cast on for something new, fun, and exciting !!!
but, for me, that socken yarn is so drop dead gorgeous, i would have a very hard time not sitting down to hand wind it into a sweet little ball :)
