Yarn Pr0n Friday - Orange Blossoms

Sorry to be posting so late in the day, and that I missed last week. Real life has been hogging my time lately. Boo on real life!

Yarn: Orange Blossoms from The Knittery

I bought this a few weeks ago from the Loopy Ewe. I've noticed that when it comes to yarn I'm a blue girl. I like my blues with the occasional bit of other dark or jewel toned colors. Tried and true colors are great things for projects like sweaters. You're not going to wear a sweater it the color doesn't work on you. But socks? Socks are where you should have some fun! You can fearlessly expand your color palette with no worry of the yarn making you look a sickly green color when you wear it. So I'm expanding! I followed a similar theory with that yarny weekend I had.

On their own the colors make me think of various sherbet flavors. Sherbet yummy.

I totally agree about sock colors. I feel much more adventurous with colors for socks since they'll be hidden under my pant legs if I'm not too thrilled with the outcome.

WOW I love that yarn. And that's my sock color theory too. Although I tend to wear a lot of bright colors... one good thing about a headscarf is that you can wear any color - as long as the scarf flatters your face there's no problem!

Gorgeous yarn, Lauren! I was reading through your blog and see that you want to train as an OT... I'm a little biased but think its a really rewarding career and a priviledge to work with people whilst they are vulnerable and hopefully towards recovery. I graduated as an OT in 1984 (old timer!!) and still love the challenge and variety of my clinical role. Can't quite say the same for the endless administration all health posts seem to entail now! [And my eldest 'baby' is also Lauren - now 18 and just off to University herself]
