Plain Vanilla Yarn PrØn

Simple YP this week: One cone of Zephyr lace weight 2/18.

5,040 yards of 50% wool, 50% tussah silk.

I don't even really know what tussah silk* is but it sounds fancy so I used it.
I'm saving it to make a shawl someday after I improve my lace knitting skills.

*Tussah silk is produced by wild silk moths instead of the cultivated moths used for the white, smooth silks.

Vanilla and boring? No darn way! Sweet and Innocent to look at, pure pron to touch, that Zephyr!

I've heard great raves about this yarn. From what I hear it is not at all boring, even in a vanilla color.

Ooh, I love that 2nd shot. White/vanilla is tough to photograph. Thanks!

I like it!!! You know without vanilla we wouldn't have chocolate--I mean what would be to stop us from calling chocolate vanilla if vanilla didn't exist? I confuse myself.

That's very pretty yarn. Vanilla, undyed, but so pretty, and so much of it, too!
Nice shot.
