It is time to stretch the comfort of my familiar color palette and branch out. Spring is upon us and even the perpetual green of southern California is taking on a brighter hue in the new growth showing about the garden. Top that off with yesterday's focus on Mardi Gras colors - those being green, gold & purple - and St. Paddy's day sneaking up, green is definitely on my mind.
And, it just so happens that a LYS is offering 25% discount on all green yarn. I could not resist. Only two skeins of this Misti Alpaca were left in the store, so I grabbed, purchased and cast on.
Hopefully, when all is knit and done, this will be an over sized cowl that can be doubled up for extra warmth or pulled up like a hood.
Three hundred stitches worked on a US 11 in the round. Fairly boring to work, but the color and feel is so delicious that it will probably be done by Friday.
Then all I need is a freakish winter blizzard in this desert.
