A tale of two greens
Wow, it has been a while since I last posted. Sorry about that, folks, but I have to tell you that posting will likely be sporadic for the next month or so. You see, the Professor and I just became homeowners. Eek! So much work to do.Anyway, you're probably expecting to see some yarn. Far be it from me not to oblige. Today I've got two very different green yarns.Fiber: The Arts at Eagle's Find 100% merino, "Leaves on the Water"2 ply500 yards114 grams (4 oz.)This yarn is nothing if not subtle. The subdued green blends easily with the gray to create a yarn that could tempt even the most conservative person. This yarn would make great man socks, although my man would probably yawn at it and say, "too boring." Well, I like it.However, it does look a little drab compared to this vivid yarn.Fiber: Crown Mountain Farms superwash merino, "Out of Time" (overdyed with green)2 ply305 yards115 gramsThis fiber was predominantly green with bits of brown and blue (see it here). Unfortunately, the lot of fiber I got had quite a bit more white in it than I really wanted. The commissioner of this yarn was very clear about wanting as little white as possible, so I decided to overdye it. (Sorry, I didn't take a "before" photo. Bad blogger!) The end product is almost shockingly green, albeit in a good way. In fact, it's remarkably similar to Dream in Color's "Happy Forest" colorway. It is indeed a happy green.
