Note from Sundara: I've recently become somewhat obsessed with pretty food photography. Not in that I want to go photograph pretty food, but in that the colors in some of these photos are just to die for.

This photo of a Tarte au Citron caught my eye because how lovely are these pale pink roses juxtaposed against the pale yellow of the tart? SO PRETTY!

Of course, these pale colors are often impossible to capture in photos, as if you correctly expose the photo, the colors wash out, and if you underexpose to get the colors, they take on a dirty tinge. So the photo does its best to convey the feeling of the yarn, but truly, the delicacy and deliciousness of this color has to be seen in person.

It's a combination of the palest of yellows, so pale you might, at first glance, think those portions of the yarn are undyed, until you compare the color to actual undyed yarn and then the sheer yellow wash comes through. Lemon at its finest. And the pink! I didn't realize I could dye such a dainty and delicate pink, let alone combine it with such a gorgeous yellow.  

You may order as much as you want until Saturday at 5PM PACIFIC.  This yarn will ship in early June, depending on factors such as when the mill gets me the yarn and whether or not my kid randomly gets sick.

Orders for 2 or more skeins will be matched as closely as possible.
