YPF: Zen Edition

OK, so it’s sock club central around here this week. My first Rockin’ Sock Club shipment showed up this afternoon, but I had already planned today’s Yarn Pr0n Friday around the Zen Yarn Garden Harmony Semi-Solid Sock Yarn Club shipment I received on Tuesday.

You see, just a day after accepting my shiny new job a few short weeks ago, I was minding my own business and reading my bloglines. Waaay back in September, I stumbled upon the blog of Baseball Knitter (only 19 days until Pitchers & Catchers report! Just two short months until the Buccos are eliminated from the postseason!), and on that particular January day about three weeks ago, Beth was talking about having signed up for the aforementioned sock club.

I read her post about six hours before the club closed to new members. And I caved. Now, I’m pretty darn glad that I did!


These pictures don’t really do the yarn justice. Trot on over to Roxanne’s club blog for a much more color-accurate picture. It’s more of a green with dusky gray shadows. Like I said, her picture is much closer to the real thing.


It’s 3-ply fingering weight, 450 yards and it’s 70% Superwash Merino, 20% Bamboo and 10% Nylon.


No idea what I’m going to knit with it, and I haven't decided if I’ll start with my STR or this when I finish my second Coriolis.

That’s about it from here. Have a great weekend!

God, whenever I read anything about the Pirates, it's all I can do not to drive down there and start kicking people in the ass. This did not stop us from ordering our 8 pack of tickets. We are gluttons for punishment! At least we ordered them with Christmas money.

Ah, the poor Pirates. I prefer to remember them back in their glory days when I was a kid. When, you know, they actually WON things...

*sigh*

Gorgeous yarn!

I love Roxanne's yummy yarns. She's got a way with color, but I don't need to tell you that! And the base yarns she uses are just delicious! Can't wait to see the STR club!

Oh, glad to see another ZYG club member. I think this yarn is gorgeous but it's impossible to photograph well. I can't wait to see next month's installment which she promised would be completely different.

Can't wait to see what you knit with your yarn.
