G is for Green
One of the kitchen doors featuring our country kitchen color scheme
I eat a lot of green veggies (broccoli and red peppers are probably my top two veggies, but I adore artichokes and asparagus, and gobble them up when in season). I collect items in green. I love gardening and being surrounded by green plants:
Our hanging fuchsia, which spends winters indoors guarded by this gnome (he has a really cool water reservoir tucked inside to help him tend the plant; symbiosis right here at Slate Range Camp)
I accumulate green yarn:
For those who always want to know about THE YARN, clockwise from the top left corner, we have lime green Fun Fur (used for a pair of fur-trimmed flip flops I made for my dearest student last year, who also loves green) which is obscuring a medium-green Elann Highland Peruvian wool, forest green Garnstudio Silke-Woole (a gift from Beth), sitting on top of and partially concealing forest green Cascade 220, apple green Elsebeth Lavold Angora, Big Geek Yarn Co., specially hand-dyed for me wool, and olive green Knitpicks Wool of the Andes.
This green's for me! This box is the collection of yarns that Kimmet Croft fibers has kitted up for the Wild Apple Bohus sweater/cardi kit. Some of you will remember that my DH had tried to order this for my Christmas gift back in early December, than gave up in despair (and maybe a trifle guilt) in late February and bought me a wonderful knitting chair when the backorder never, ever arrived... except that it did last week. I will be swatching both patterned and unpatterned portions of the sweater this weekend to determine which needles sizes "get gauge". This lovely Fairy Hare yarn, from their own 60% angora and 40% merino wool blending, is much softer than the Elsebeth Lavold angora blend, and melts at the touch. It will be a joy to work with!
