Weekly Photo Challenge: Indulge

I know that “indulge” as a post title probably has most people running for the chocolate, cake or other decadent food images. Now, I have no problem at all with chocolate or cake (I may have indulged in a spot of chocolate mousse after tea tonight), but, to me, there’s something that’s an awful lot more indulgent:
Cashmere, silk, merino, baby alpaca: that’s pure indulgence. The only way to gild the lily would be to paint on gorgeous, unique colours by hand. Here is part of my stash of hand-dyed yarns: all beautiful, decadent, frivolous and marvellous. I try to knit my way through it, but sometimes it’s just so gorgeous in the skein that all you want to do is pet it.

Yarn you can’t bear to knit, and just want to stroke? It doesn’t get much more indulgent than that…

Yarns dyed by Posh Yarn, Boo’s Attic, Sparkleduck and Green Eyed Monsters. Bizarre composition by a photographer with very few well-lit flat surfaces in her house.
