Doing the Yarn (and art) Pr0n thang!

Little Traveller-handpainted sock yarn-"SCOTLAND" By The Sanguine Gryphon

Traveller- handpainted sock yarn-"IRELAND" by The Sanguine Gryphon

So I've wanted to take part in the whole "Yarn Pr0n on Friday" for a while now but never quite got it together...I haven't bought a ton of yarn recently (trying to be good and use what I have) and then there's some I can't blog about.....and some that's just too plain (but still lovely)....however look what the postie brought me today!

Delicious yarn purchased from the Sanguine Gryphon.....for no particular purpose just yet...just for me.....couldn't resist the names on these! Not the best of photos...grey in Fresno today!
Gryphon is donating half of her yarn sales (for the next month) to a family she knows who just lost everything in a fire.....go check out her website (I've linked it like crazy on this post) she has all sorts of yummy goodness over there.

....and here's a bit of art prOn my 8 year old whipped up last night and I just have to proudly share...fits in with Gryphon's yarn as she's into medieval inspired stuff! (For more art here is my daughter's blog)!

The yarn looks beautiful. Oh, to have touchy, feely computer screens.

Your daughter's drawing is wonderful. Gorgeous colours. She's very clever - just like her mum.
