In tribute to Earth Hour, may I present to you knitabulous' study in greens.
I don't really like green much as a rule, but I acknowledge that some people do, so if I'm going to go into the dyeing business (which I am working on) I'll have to dye colours that aren't always to my taste.
Not all yarn can be pink, can it?
IVY LEAGUE- 55% silk, 45% wool laceweight - 100g/930m/(1020yd) - SOLD
This is a really beautiful yarn, up there with the best laceweights I've ever seen. It's got almost no halo and a nice dry hand from the silk, but the presence of the wool means it's going to still be lively when it's knitted. Not too thin, not too thick. I'm kind of in love with this yarn.
EVOO - 80% superwash merino, 20% nylon sock yarn 100g/420m(450yd)SOLD
You know when you go to a nice restaurant with white tablecloths and big stiff napkins you sometimes get a dish of olive oil with your bread? (forgive me if that's a bit yesterday, it's been a while since I've been to a good restaurant) And you know how those dishes are sometimes graduated, so the oil looks darker and darker in concentric circles? Well that's the colour I was going for in this yarn. Foodie points for anyone who knows the acronym.
This is a nice squishy sock yarn with a good firm twist and the superwash/nylon blend means your gift socks won't get wrecked when the recipient chucks them in the machine.
MERMADIA - 100% silk lace - 150g/1000yds(930m) - SOLD
This one is probably my favourite of the three. It's a pretty greeny blue mix, a soft shade but not pastel. A happy green I think. This laceweight is slightly heavier than some of the silk laceweights I've seen around, which makes for slightly meatier projects, and slightly easier knitting. However, it won't be the base yarn I'll be using in the future.
