Fiberlicious Friday: Dinner and Dessert
I liked Megan’s idea for Fiberlicious Fridays (yarn posed as food), that I tried my poor hand at it while M made real dinner. Megan’s even set up a Flickr group. This was a good exercise for me because all of these yarns are from my stash, and I had pretty much forgotten that I had them. M asked me what I was doing when he saw me arranging yarn on various plates. I told him of Megan’s idea, and he looked at me as though both Megan and I had lost our marbles. I explained that Megan was studying for her Ph. D. prelim exams. M nodded in understanding, but then asked, “So what’s your excuse?” Excuse? I have yarn, dishes, and a camera.
Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Cabin Fever, Claudia’s Hand Painted in Eat Your Veggies, and Regia Fadig 4 in a starchy color.
Since it’s summer, and dinner looks like it might be a bit heavy, we have a lovely sorbet for dessert:
Lorna’s Laces Shepherd’s Sock in Mixed Berry.
That looks tasty enough to look at from the other side where the blackberries are hiding.
As I mentioned, I had forgotten these yarns, so they aren’t in my mental sock knitting queue. Therefore, the question becomes, can I get them knit by the end of Summer of Socks 2007?
Right now I’m off to knit some Chocolate Cherry Socks for a very nice lady.
Have a great weekend!

Yum, I think I’m coming to dinner. And no baloney sandwiches, please!
Ha! I love it. And BIG kudos for doing it in front of M! My M would have teased me incessantly to no end… I try to do my creative stuff with yarn when he’s out biking or something. And a WHOLE meal? Complete with dessert?? You certainly take the (yarn)cake this round!
I love the pictures! I will be over for dinner at seven, is that ok? 🙂
Ha ha ha! That’s a great use for yarn! One can ALWAYS find more uses for yarn, though. Lovely colors, especially the berry!
A visual smörgåsbord, soothing to the yarn palette. What a fun idea.
Yuummmmyy! Looks lovely, especially the sorbet. 😉
Yum-O! I think that yarn is a perfect substitute for a meal at any time! The “Eat Your Veggies” is really pretty, too. Can’t wait to see what you do with it when the time comes!
That’s a great idea! And what pretty yarns.
Looks delicious. Hmmm, I seem to have a mental sock knitting queue as well. Once I found an Opal skein in my stash with a pattern suggestion on a post-it. Good thing, as I had already forgotten!
The “sorbet” looks good enough to eat! Can’t wait to see that yarn as socks.
LOL! Too cute! Love the “sorbet”. 🙂
Knitters describe yarns with food terms: delicious, yummy, etc. So it seems quite natural to me to put them on a plate. I especially like that “sorbet.” Talk about yummy!
The summer socks- cascade fixation. Short, summery, and my sock pal really likes this yarn/color– a perfect match from stash yarn!
Great shots! I love the “meal”, what a great idea!
MMMMMM yummy looking. What time is dinner? Beautiful yarn indeed.
Beautiful fiber – good enough to eat! I love how most of the yarns had names that evoked food!
Lovely sorbet! Fab blog! I shall be visting often I think!
Sometimes I think yarn looks good enough to eat, LOL. You’ve taken it to a new level here! Mmmm.
Cool photos and a neat idea for posing yarn (how creative of Megan!). Those are some lovely colors, too.
Wow! All your yarns look so lovely! I always look peeking in at other people’s stashes. 🙂
