Gratuitous Yarn Pr0n

I'm such an easily-influenced pushover. I saw some fantastic yarn on an episode of Knitty Gritty one day, which prompted a Google search, which resulted in my buying it from an ebay seller.

It arrived today in all its yarny 300-yard goodness.

Feast your eyes:

(Notice the name of that yarn color? Do I need to remind you of my love of anything whose colorway is called "Peacock"? I do? Okay, then remember this?)

And a few close-ups:

(Top photo taken in bright sunlight; bottom taken in incandescent light. Once again, the lightbulb wins out, in my opinion, as far as reproducing the colors most accurately.)

Plans for this yarn? None, as of this writing. But I'm happy just gazing upon it lovingly. (Is it sick that some fancy string can bring such joy?)

I'll bet it will be a blast to knit up, so it may be hard to keep my itchy fingers off of it -- we'll see how long I can hold out!

Yep Sparkly yarn does that to you. It's not something I really want anything wearable out of but it just looks pretty. :)

Our local yarn shop here sells that yarn in all different colors for $50-75. I bought some once and made a very nice scarf.
