I think I have a chartreuse problem.
I’m not sure when it started. It might have been a few years ago, when I dressed up as Absinthe for Halloween. I was La Fée Verte, or the Green Fairy. We often pick Halloween costumes that are a little avant garde, so to most people I just looked like a girl dressed up with wings and a big green sparkly ballgown.
Today, I’ve apparently turned my obsession with this color over to yarn. Surely not, you say. Oh yes, says I.
Around the outside is my Lace Ribbon Scarf done in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock in Pond Scum. On the left is The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! in Goldenrod Crab Spider. In the middle is Hedgehog Fibres Merino/Cashmere Sock in Ripe. On the right is Wollmeise 100% superwash sock in Frosch.
Since posting this photo on Ravelry, I’ve gotten eleventy million questions asking me about the skein in the middle, the Hedgehog Fibres yarn.
It is an unusual color, with lots of yellows mixed in as you can see. Really unique. I discovered people raving about the dyer on Ravelry, and when I saw she was from Cork, Ireland, I just had to check her out. I spent my study abroad during college in Cork, and I have extremely fond memories of it. We’re actually hoping to make a trip to Ireland within the next year or so, as it’s been calling my name and the nagging is getting on my nerves.
Will posting green yarn help bring on Spring?
