Yummy! What will you do with it? Besides love it? And is it superwash, or the old fashioned wash? Looks lovely.

A beautiful looking yarn!!!!

turtlegirl76 said...

Wow. I must seek that out someday! The base looks similar to STR. Nice and tight twist.

peaknits said...

Wowza, gorgeous - I have been admiring it. I just got my first Squoosh this week - for my partner - for a swap - omg, it was hard to part with:) But there's an update today...

Beautiful color, and it looks like the yarn is aptly named.

I LOVE honeycrisp apples! I'm usually more of a Granny Smith girl, but when I want a sweeter apple, there's nothing better than a honeycrisp.

Bezzie said...

Oh dear lord! DELISH! On both accounts. I'm convinced I could live on a diet of apples and potatoes. Mmmm!

chemgrrl said...

Crap. I need to stop reading your blog. I NEED that yarn! Sigh. Why do you have such good taste?

Sam said...

OMG, I have mad, mad love for that yarn! Colorwise I'm not sure there could be a more perfect yarn for me and cashmere to boot. Holy Cow I need to get my hands on some of that. Hmm...wait I see a link.. one skein left and it's all mine! Good thing I got up early today

Brena said...

That looks delicious!

Neuroknitter said...

OH.MY.GOSH. I saw that very same yarn last night and was ogling, ogling, ogling it, but talked myself out of it. Stupid me. It is now gone. Holy poop I'm an idiot! Those are so my colors!! And it isn't like I don't know that if I don't buy it now it won't be there in the morning...sheesh. Slap me upside the head, please!

So, back to you...that yarn is dang gorgeous and your photos are awesome!!! You go girl!!! Indecently gorgeous!

Neuroknitter said...

Sam....you're the culprit....Aaaargh...I'm wilting and dying...and crinkling up...I just missed it by minutes...that hurts!!! :) :)

I'm ok now. Enjoy it Sam!! I'll wait for the next crop! :)

vickyd said...

Gorgeous! I love the colors...and cashmere...say no more!

Zonda said...

knittersharmony said...

Scrabblequeen said...

sheepish one said...

you're such a bad, bad (and really, really good) influence!

Laura said...

That yarn is gorgeous!! I lovelovelove Honeycrisp apples. Tge first time I had one, I went back to the store and bought something like three pounds because they're so hard to find in my neck of the woods!

JellyDonut said...

Oh my! This is gorgeous stuff. I need to find a place for a secret stash otherwise I will have some explaining to do. At this very moment I am hatching a plan to hunt down this yarn and sneak it into the house.

Jadielady said...

Oh wow that is beatufiul!! I've been loving browns and other colors recently. Looks perfect with the apples too!

Knitika said...

I gasped aloud when I saw your yarn photo. Gorgeous picture of a gorgeous yarn!

weezalana said...

Wow, that is GORgeous! I wish I could wear cashmere! *sniff*

marcy said...

yum to the yarn and the apples.
i got the aapples for jam book after you posted and love it. now to spare the time away from my sock to cook from it!!!

tapmouse said...

Please don't be offended if I stop reading your blog so often. That yarn is just too tempting with one such as myself who is weak and will go out and buy such yarn!

LOVE that color! Sounds absolutely irresistable.

tapmouse said...

PS-I think you will have to start putting 'Sock Porn WARNING!!!" in your posts (you know, ala "Spoiler Warnings"...) for some of us who are on serious yarn deprivation. (Note: I did not say 'diet'...)

Knitting Kris said...

That yarn is insanely beautiful! And cashmere? I would be sold too!

Batty said...

Those colors are to die for. I'm always suspicious of colors named after recognizable things because, frankly, at least half of the time, you can't really tell what the connection is supposed to be. But with this yarn, it's really obvious. Just looking at it makes me happy.

So... what are you going to make out of those apples? It's cold out. Knitting while the smell of apple crisp or apple pie permeates the house... yeah, that's the life.

Disco said...

Oh my! Now that is very nice indeed.

Hope you'll get some more time to blog soon ;0)

Nell said...

Yum! I love Fuji apples. As long as they are crisp. That's the key!

I hope work eases up on your soon.

cupcakefaerie said...
