It's Easy Being Green
I'm not typically a green person. But as I looked for yarn at The Fiber Universe a couple days ago, this "Mojito" colorway in Three Irish Girls fingering weight jumped out at me. It's a really pretty "spring" green with just enough variety in the color to keep it interesting, but not so much that it overpowers the stitch pattern. There was also a really pretty light yellow/orange/peach colorway that I would have gotten too, but they only had one skein left of that and I needed two. I'm glad I found the green though - it'll be a nice change of pace from the typical pinks & blues I tend to pick for my sample garments (I'm a little predictable like that.)
This is a pretty quick knit, even in the size 4T that I'm doing. I'll have to knit one more yoke once I'm finished just to double-check the pattern for the other group of sizes, but it will definitely be ready for testers next month!
