Chestnut Cloud

Okay.. I took a picture of the latest skein that I dyed before I took it to the store, and here it is..



Isn't it pretty? I call it "Chestnut Cloud" after Cloud the cat of course!



Here are a couple more pictures of the skein twisted in a different way, they all look so beautiful to me, I love them.













I took this into the shop and it didn't even get to the display. It was bought and rolled into a ball before I left, also, before I left, I had an order for another brown, 3 pinks, like my socks... seen here... I call this my "Grrls kick butt Pink". If you click on the picture, you should be able to see the cable detail..

I also was asked for a lilac and a green. I had to order more yarn so that I can actually get some yarn on the shelf. Not that I'm complaining. I finally get to play with the colors without feeling guilty that I am adding more yarn to my already bloated sock yarn stash.
I just wanted you all to see, I will continue to take pictures of what comes out of my kettle pot. Let me know what you think.
I have to go take care of an ill child now. John went to work for the 1st time this week, he has Walking Pneumonia, Sam has bronchitis, I have a sinus infection, and Ben is generally grumpy because everyone else is ill (Who can blame him?)
I think I'll throw in a movie for the boys and I and I will work on those socks. Sounds like the perfect way to spend Saturday night to me.
I also played with getting the spacing correct on this posting, and frankly I'm done, Sorry that it's all smooshed together.

I want to learn to knit socks! Your yarn is beautiful.

I am sick over here too. Sore throat, coughing, miserable.
