Good Enough to Eat (3KCBWDAY2)


Soft serve, with a cherry on top

This yarn arrived a few days ago. It’s for the Ladies Cape KAL.  It’s laceweight undyed Superkid Mohair (70%) and Mulberry Silk (30%) from Yarn Undyed and it is soft and silky and gorgeous and perfectly good enough to eat. 500 metres to 50g. £31.20 for 250 grams.

If icecream isn’t your bag, there are always other desserts…

Fruit-filled Pavlova meringue

One of my favourites, Pavlova.

Peach pie topped with cream and a drizzle of raspberry sauce

mmm, cream.

    That actually looks quite yummy!! Beautiful photographs 🙂

    • Beth 24th April 2012 at 11:07 am #

      Thank you very much. I was pleased with the way that they worked out – it was difficult to achieve a realistic-looking scale.

    These turned out so delicious looking! 🙂 Great idea!

  9. Karen 24th April 2012 at 12:32 pm #

    Beautiful! Good enough to eat, maybe:)

    They really are good enough to eat – yummmmmmmy!

    Yummy! I love Pavlova, too 🙂

  15. Sam 24th April 2012 at 2:15 pm #

    great one! That yarn does seriously look yummy.

  16. Pirate 24th April 2012 at 2:30 pm #

    Mmm, I’ll take the peach pie, please 🙂 That laceweight looks gorgeous, very similar to what I’m using for the stole I’m working on!

    • Beth 24th April 2012 at 2:34 pm #

      The laceweight turns out to be very nice stuff indeed. Easy to knit with, not too bad to tink, and (most importantly) does not shed everywhere. I’m 25 rows into my cape and it’s looking great.

  17. Ellen 24th April 2012 at 2:50 pm #

    That yarn looks like heaven!

    • Beth 24th April 2012 at 2:55 pm #

      It is heaven indeed.
      BTW – I visited you early today and tried to comment about your lovely range. Your login validation tied me up in knots and then the software seized, so I was unable to leave a comment.

    Luscious! Have fun spinning!

  20. Sue 24th April 2012 at 4:08 pm #

    they do look very realistic, especially the pavlova, yum

  21. anji 24th April 2012 at 4:14 pm #

    No fair! Now I’m hungry! That yarn looks lovely, and I’m sure it feels heavenly. Do you know what you’ll make out of it once it’s spun up?

    • Beth 24th April 2012 at 5:00 pm #

      It’s already spun, Anji – I bought it as yarn. (I softened the image to get more of an ice cream effect) The yarn is already deployed and is to become a “Ladies Circular Cape in Shell Pattern” from Victorian Lace Today. Ravelry project here

    beautiful yarn + decadent desserts = a match made in heaven. Great photos!

  23. Voie de Vie 24th April 2012 at 4:55 pm #

    Love, love, love the top photo – ice cream avec cherry on top, please. 🙂 Did you use a ladle-sized spoon to get the scale correct?

    • Beth 24th April 2012 at 4:57 pm #

      Thank you, and well spotted. I was beginning to think that nobody had got it. Getting the scale was tricky – I used a microwave turntable for the plate and a serving spoon

  24. Snowcatcher 24th April 2012 at 8:02 pm #

    Boy, have you ever made me hungry!!!

  25. Liz H 24th April 2012 at 8:09 pm #

    Glad I’m not the only one who thought of yarn making dessert!
    Very cool pics

    • Beth 24th April 2012 at 9:07 pm #

      I’ve been to a number of sites today that portrayed yarn as dessert/cake. Clearly knitters are of a single mind. Your sock blankie is looking good. Mine, I am afraid, is languishing.

  26. Kristina 24th April 2012 at 8:45 pm #

    That is some of the softest yarn I’ve every seen and I love the pictures with it looking like food. Yum!

  27. Alexandra 24th April 2012 at 11:22 pm #

    Yummy! The all look wonderful!

  29. Triona 25th April 2012 at 12:26 am #

    Wow, that first photo is amazing! I’m totally going to nominate it for the photography award 🙂

    • Beth 25th April 2012 at 10:59 am #

      Gosh, thank you!

  30. Kepanie 25th April 2012 at 1:36 am #

    I love how you had dessert on your mind! What a great way to use your yarn and roving.

  31. mib 25th April 2012 at 2:20 am #

    yarnlicious !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. Kell 25th April 2012 at 2:42 am #

    Wow, am I craving pavlova now. Fantastic and clever idea and photos.

  33. Lisa 25th April 2012 at 2:48 am #


  34. Becky 25th April 2012 at 4:17 am #

    Such a great idea and I cannot resist ice cream or yarn! Ha ha

  35. Amy 25th April 2012 at 6:20 am #

    OMG, those are soooo cute! I’m glad I didn’t look at your photos until I’d finished my post, otherwise I might have been shamed into not putting one up today!

    Well done!

    • Beth 25th April 2012 at 11:01 am #

      Your photo is perfectly lovely and it made me smile. What a gorgeous young chap you have there

  36. Marie/Underground Crafter 30th April 2012 at 3:24 pm #

  37. Bev 30th April 2012 at 9:52 pm #
