Seeing Green

I hope everyone had a very happy St. Patrick's Day. March 17th will always hold a special place in my heart, because it is my best friend's birthday. Not only is it her birthday, but her favorite color is green. Last May, at Maryland Sheep and Wool, I found the perfect green yarn for her. It's true, I have lots of other greens in stash, but this one was the perfect compromise of a wonderfully soft yarn that I would enjoy knitting, and the perfect shades of green.
My best friend's clapotis scarf hanging in the (will she ever clean that?) window:


This picture is a truer representation of the colors. They are not as gray as the first photo appears.


I have about a half a skein left, perhaps she will have some fingerless mitts in her future. Who knows?!!

What a great best friend gift...you are a kindred spirit, Jen. I too make things like that for my best friend, and her favorite color for the longest time? green.

Hi there! I just wanted to make sure you're aware that your blog is in the queue for the Fiber Arts Bloggers ring, because you don't have any code up. I just sent you the code again--please let me know if you don't get it? I'd love to get you back in the ring. :)

Hello Jen! I had the most wonderful package waiting for me when I returned home from my retreat weekend! Thank you so much! The cats really liked the mouse, too.

Alright, you. As gorgeous as this scarf is (and it is), I'm ready to see your latest. How 'bout some blankey pictures? ;-)

Barb said...

Okay Jen, I see that I stole your post title on my blog a little ways back. I knew I liked that title (smile)
