Let "Operation In Sight, In Mind" commence!

I have a theory.

I developed this theory earlier today, after taking some photos of my yarn stash for Ravelry.

(I just got my invite to Ravelry, and it could not have come at a better time, since I was just talking about how if I can't see it, I forget I have it. So, I am very excited about Ravelry. But more on that in another post. Must. Tell you. About. Theory.)

My theory is this: I think there is a relationship between the amount of love I have for a yarn and my ability to take a good picture of it.

While it is certainly not always the case, I think it can be said that the more I love a yarn, the more likely it is that will I take a bad picture of it. The picture is likely to be blurry, badly composed, and just in general unremarkable. Remember those photos of the Argentina haul? Ok then.

So. With that in mind, how would you say I feel about this yarn?

I don't want to toot my own horn about this photo or anything, but here's a hint: I'm not getting married any time soon.

Wow, that yarn has, like, 4 different kinds of novelty going on with it. Impressive.

Great photo! :)

Your graph does not indicate "utter loathing" but your picture does.

That picture IS awesome! The yarn belongs, sadly, with the abandoned baby bootie. (Not that I haven't been known to occasionally stock up on novelty yarn with wild abandon myself...)

Really great photo. That's all I'm gonna say.
