Favorite Colors

I haven't done any blogstalking assignments in a while. This week's was to post a few things in your favorite color. That's really tough for me, because I don't have a color that I call my favorite. I don't even have color families I call my favorite. So, I decided to post some colorful photos:

Pink! I love pink. Here are a few pink anemones and corals from the New England Aquarium:

(I got a little bit of orange in there as well.)

Green! Green is another favorite of mine, especially bright, springy greens.

Myrtle the Green Sea Turtle:

You know how when a woman is wearing low-rise jeans, and her hips are pouring out over the waistband, and it's called a "muffin top"? Well, Myrtle has what we call "muffin plastron". Look at this:

We've got the blues, too:

We had a fun night at the Aquarium. It was an adult's only member's night, and there were only about 100 people there. Dinner and an open bar were included, but it was worth it to be able to enjoy a nearly empty aquarium.

The painted turtle was a great source of amusement. Most of the photos I took of him looked like this:

I have a few more photos just as blurry, but I figured I would save your eyes and not post 'em here. If you want to take a look at them, you can check out my New England Aquarium 2007 photo set on Flickr.

Meanwhile, check out the video I made of that turtle being a complete jerk to this poor fish:



Since we're talking about colors here, I figured I would include some fiber pr0n. I have a very small spinning stash, but I suppose it's big enough for a new spinner. Here's some of the fiber I bought from Spunky Eclectic right after Christmas:

I believe this color is "Atomic Melon". As you can see on the label, it's Falkland. It's very, very soft.

It reminds me of sherbert! Yum!

IMG_4824

I don't remember the content or the name of this, but it is a nice, mellow blue:

IMG_4827

This color is called "kites". I'm not certain of the contents:

IMG_4828

IMG_4829

IMG_4830

And I KNOW this is called "hot rod".

IMG_4831

Doesn't the bottom of this look like a bum?

IMG_4832

IMG_4833

IMG_4834

I've been working with this a little bit. The color is called "hidden".

IMG_4835

This reminds me of looking at distant mountains:

This is some of the natural coopworth I got with my wheel. It's really soft and lovely, and I have 2 lbs of it!

I got more fiber today! bluetangle from the knittyboard sent me some luciously soft, undyed merino roving from this etsy shop. So not only do I get to play with spinning, I get to play with dyeing too!!

Poor fish?! I betcha anything that fish was making fun of that turtle and calling him slow. Therefore, the turtle chased the fish around the playground. ;)
