Stash and Snow

Last night was filled with somewhat surprises -- somewhat because they were expected but fun all the same.

First, I got a delivery from Little Knits.  They had an awesome sale on SWTC Twize (Ravelry).  Its 100% bamboo in a worsted weight.  I got a bag (10 skeins) in "Twack" -- also know as black and white:

I also got 2 bags of it in "Twey" which probably should be "gray" but I don't think so.  Look at the color on Little KnitsAnd on the actual SWTC site.  And here are my pictures -- first with a flash:


Then with the flash but closer:


And then without the flash:

Don't they look different?  Or am I going crazy?  (Its okay to tell me I'm crazy lots of people do.)

I also got some more Sea Silk, in Sterling, but I'm not so sure that it is really silvery... it more of a goldish-gray.  I can't seem to find a picture of this colorway on line, so you'll have to settle for my pictures:

With a flash:


Color corrected: (sorta with PhotoShop Elements)


Without the flash-- in this one it looks the most silvery -- go figure.


And now for the snow party --  we knew that it was going to snow, but we didn't think there would be any accumulation.  But there was and the puppies had fun -- here they are coming in from a romp...

anyways i really like how the mastifs have snow on their backs coming in, like the hounds did the other nite.
