In the "what sort of crafts do you do?" thread, Brina said:
Well, maybe pictures of your yarn (YARN PORN).  Wink

That immediately made me think of the Noro yarn that someone in my DW circle was raving about last year, that even I - not a fiber artist or yarn geek at all - found yarngasmic.

My next thought was, there are enough yarn addicts on TC that it's surprising that we don't already have a thread for drooling over/coveting particular yarns.  So here ya go - post pics and/or links of yarn you love, or yarn you made (or, of course, yarn you made that you love).

Man, that's what I hate about Noro - it's SO damn pretty.

It's like knitting with sandpaper.

but it's SO damn pretty.

<nods>  Noro's why I started spinning.  I thought, maybe I could make something that looks like Noro but doesn't feel like a burlap bag full of fiberglass insulationWink

Two questions, Brina. First, is that sock yarn some that you spun/dyed? And second, do you sell it? Because I'm in love with that colorway!

The base yarn is KnitPicks Bare Merino/nylon blend (so nope, I didn't spin it).  I did dye it, however, with really loooong color runs (about four feet) to make socks with big, fat stripes.  I mostly only dye for myself or gifts, although I'll sometimes barter.  You might want to just give dyeing a whirl, though.  It's not difficult, and it's really fun.  Smiley
