Ready for the Closeup?

Madeline Tosh "Oceana," Superwash Merino Wool

I learned quite a bit about photographing yarn and yarny objects at the photo workshop on Tuesday. We also received training on how to edit the look of our photos, adding captions and more.
I could not leave the Loop & Leaf Yarn Shop in Santa Barbara without purchasing some souvenir yarn.

Everyone knows that I have an abundance of yarn at my house. I do not NEED anymore yarn. HOWEVER, I could not resist the softness of this Madeline Tosh, superwash merino wool, worsted weight yarn. I usually purchase yarns in the red, orange tones. I've been trying to add some dash to my stash with some contrasting colors. I think this gorgeous aqua yarn does the trick!
See you tonight at the WeHo SnB, Original Farmers Market!

Well done with the choice of blue! I love it! I'd have brought it home as well.

Ha ha! I'm also trying to break up our usual tones and add some contrast to my stash. So far, I've moved over to aqua/turquoise. Great minds. :)

I would think that you and Larry would set up an old age home in your back yard for a couple of senior citizen sheep. I mean feed them, care for them, give them a nice burial at the end. Kinda a thank you for all they have given you. So many sheep are neglected after a lifetime of give to yarn shops all over the world.

Such a pretty blue. I've been trying to spruce up my stash with different colors as well. I tend to buy in the purple, blue, green, brown colorways.

Gorgeous yarn! The only way it could have been better is if it were named "Oceana 815"! Oops. Oceanic. Never mind...
