You know how you get bad hair days? Well I get bad photo days (and quite frankly, every day is a bad hair day since I decided to grow my hair again – AGAIN!). And today’s one of ’em. Don’t ask me why, maybe it’s the light, maybe I need to buy new camera batteries (because I don’t think the old ones are charging fully any more). But none of the photos are coming out as pretty as the yarn. Ho hum. I suppose it’s better for the real thing to be prettier than the photo than for it to be a disappointment.

Anyway, enough of the waffling. Here’s some of my favourites from this week’s batch:

Eva 2ply in Tambour

Eva 2ply in Brocade

Eva 2ply in Adorn

Sophia 2ply in Pollinate

Emily in Lichen

Emily in Heath

Emily in Strata

Tony has been experimenting with applying tiny amounts of the dye powder directly onto the wet yarn, with gorgeous results. You can see it best in the first and fourth pictures, little golden dots sprinkled throughout the yarn, like specks of pollen dusted over blossoms. Gorgeous.

So, the preview will be ready in a little while. Lots of you have mentioned that you would like to knit sweaters and cardis from our sock yarn, so we’ve done larger amounts in lots of the colourways for that purpose. The lovely Anne has knitted Thermal in Emily, and it looks superb. And just by the by, if anyone is looking for some knitting inspiration, pop along to the gallery section of the Posh Knitters group – there are so many great photos on there.

One last thing, I’ve been looking through my stats again (its rather addictive, especially when they keep going up and up), and discovered that someone had arrived at Posh Yarn by asking Google “what type of luxury magazines do rich people read?” If you find out the answer, do let me know. Also what brand of toilet paper rich people use. These are the things that keep me awake at night.
