The knitting of the green

I have to admit it: green has generally tended to fall near the bottom of my color preference list (I do make an exception for teal, which is entirely different animal). When I say “green,” I mean a grassy shade that would pass as a color to wear to mark St. Patrick’s Day — which I will probably spend in my apartment, working and enjoying a craft beer with my husband, because I am old, or at least the bars in my neighborhood make me feel old on this particular holiday.

The color has been growing on me, though. I recently knit a Horloge cowl for a friend in the new Rustic Silk Worsted base from Pigeonroof Studios in her gorgeous Emerald colorway. While it’s not a color I generally gravitate toward for myself, I can certainly admire these easy-on-the eyes greens that have been posted to the Indie Untangled marketplace:
