I finally got around to photographing some lovely, lovely yarn I bought over the holidays at home. Right here, if you’re curious. My hometown isn’t a very upscale place, more the acrylic crocheted blanket kind of place, so I was mighty surprised to find some pretty super sock yarn on offer.
This is some very sproingy and smooshy Cherry Tree Hill supersock solid called, in what I can only imagine was a fit of understatement, pink. It’s more like super-duper-grapefruit-gummy pink. So saturated.
In a spontaneous act of yarn and pattern attraction, the supersock really, really wants to become a pair of Go with the Flow socks [ravelry link] by Evelyn A. Clark from Favorite Socks. We’re just waiting on Deutsche Post, baby.
It’s Project Spectrum perfection.
I also bought some of the supersock in cherry, a name which almost completely fails to conjure up the fire engine, the tomatoey-cherry goodness, or the Japanese lacquer cabinet contained in Cherry Tree Hill’s alchemical dye pot. That fiery nugget remained at home, burning a hole in my closet floor.
