It appears I may have misled someone into thinking that I don't like green. Not true, I DO like green.
Compare the colour of the Swallowtail shawl with the colour of the wall shown here. It's pretty close to the same. They're both a bit on the yellow side of green, and it's actually a colour a really like. The green in these socks, though, bothered me not because it was a bad green, which it isn't at all, but because of the way it behaved. It was the wash-over effect. If it had striped, or mottled, I probably would have been quite happy.
And speaking of colour, I happened to stop by a LYS yesterday. I was just driving by -- I really wasn't going to stop ... really. But I rarely get to that part of town, so, you know, since I was there anyway ... ahem. Look what I found.
There's some colour for you. And it's not green. I'm thinking it maybe wants to become a So-Called Scarf.
I don't really want to be thinking about scarves in August, but there is always this to think about.
I also discovered that there will very soon be a local source for .... Koigu. I swear, I could feel the drool dripping down my chin.
