New Yarns, New Project

The fluffy purple thing is finished, all piled up on its fuzzy self on top of a pile of scarves, hats, and armwarmers I need to photograph for an Etsy update. Until I've done my mini photoshoot, I'll share some pictures (poor quality, but the colors are fairly accurate) of some of the yarn I got for Christmas!
Yes, this is Regia sock yarn in one of the Kaffe Fassett colorways. Good choice, Mom!
Some Cascade 220 Paints in a color called David's Eyes. I am not sure who David is, but he sure has pretty eyes.
Last but not least, two colors of wool (well, okay, the tweedy one is a wool-acrylic blend).

I'm using the charcoal shade of the Patons to make the slouchy version of Gretel. I'm about 3/4 of the way finished, so I'll wait until it's done and I can get a picture outside - it's really hard to see the cable definition on such a dark yarn indoors generally, so I have no hope of getting a good picture.
That's all I've got for the moment. Now it's back to translating for me...

Outside of the context, "I'm using the charcoal shade of the Patons to make the slouchy version of Gretel." is a really cryptic and entertaing sentence.
