Fiberlicious Friday: Tess Limeade Edition.

Just popping in to say hi before I return to my regularly scheduled program of working on the Women in Archaeology exhibition or studying for prelim exams. Oh, um, or watching the first two seasons of Lost. That's right, I made it through the first three seasons of the Wire in a scarily short period of time. We're talking mere days. And if you haven't seen the Wire yet? See the Wire. So good. But addictive. And while I wait impatiently for the fourth season to wrap up and get released on DVD, I watch Lost. And after Lost, it will probably be Deadwood. Oh, and preparing for prelims, of course. Can't forget about that.

And hey! Because I have copious amount of free time on my hands (insert liberal amounts of sarcasm here), I take photographs of yarn as if it were edible. It's this series I've been doing for awhile now (check out the entire series here), sort of unconsciously, and then at some point I realized I was taking lots of photographs of yarn as if it were, well, food. So what does one do when one realizes they have a bizarro photographing habit? They start a Flickr pool for said bizarro photographs and they encourage others to participate in taking their own bizarro photographs! And then they create a day (and who doesn't like Fridays, right? Sorry, Eye Candy Friday) when they post said bizarro photographs on their blog. Ta-da!

For those who are on Flickr, come join Fiberlicious!
For those without Flickr accounts, there's always Fiberlicious! Friday. Or, really, Fiberlicious! Any Day of the Week, Whenever You Feel Like It! And if you're participating, feel free to nab a button from the sidebar.

Why? Because sometimes yarn looks good enough to eat. And who doesn't need more fiber in their diet?

Have a great weekend, all!

Seriously, just looking at this makes me crave lime sherbet. Mouth. Watering.

I have great plans for a fiberlicious photo as soon as I put down my February Sweater. Which will be any minute now, I swear.

Now I feel like having some kiwi fruit. Yum! I think I'll probably try and come up with some fiberlicious ideas now. What a great idea!

I just recently discovered your blog through your Flickr photos I think. Or maybe I somehow got there from Dogged. Anyway, I really enjoyed this post and I was looking around your blog and saw that you made the Salina. I've been eyeing that one for a while but haven't saved up for the Felted Tweed yet. You've inspired me to definitely make one as soon as I can. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh, if you don't mind I'm adding your blog to my list of blog links on my new blog. Thanks!

I think this qualifies for Eye Candy Friday, too...

Is the Women in Archaeology exhibit going to be at the Penn museum?

wow! I never even thought of it as lime, but like Ashley says: lime sherbet! perfect!

I went back to the tess booth TWICE looking for green and that was seriously the only green I saw! So I was very anxious that you might not like its crazy almost-neon self. ;)

Ooh, so glad you opened this up for the rest of us -- now I get to copy your fiber-as-food innovation with no shame. :) [runs off to take photos]

If someone had asked me when I woke up this morning if yarn could ever make me thirsty, I'd've said no. And how wrong I'd be...

Mmm, that looks fantastic! What a great concept--I'm all about contributing next Friday! Catching up on Lost, eh? I warn you now--it sucks you right in.

More Fiber in your diet!!!
What a great concept. I wonder if Weight Watchers ever thought of using knitting as an appetite control tool.
But these wonderful pictures make me want Key Lime Pie!!!!! Beautiful ... the yarn would be great for Elenora Socks (my next project).

Wow I am sooooo glad to meet another Deadwood fan. I have watched all of the prior seasons and just seem to like the all around general grittyness (possible new word there) and realistic approach to the show. Either that or I am secretly in love with Timothy Olyphant.
Ok, I admit I have a rather large crush on Seth!

I just joined the group - it's fabulous! I'm excited to have found someone who shares my lust of knitting - the "taste" of it:)

Lost makes me want to throw things at the TV, it's so idiotic but impossible to stop watching. You and Ashley just cranked thru Deadwood so I'm clearly going to have to add it to my queue. I just got Firefly--never seen it before--so that's exciting.

I have always loved your yarn in bowls series; I have so little fiber I probably won't be able to participate in Fiberlicious Fridays myself, but I will come here to drool!

Cute idea (I'm loving that green yarn, too)--I'll contribute someday. After I move--ugh.
