Color Theory: More Green

My first Color Theory about Green got me thinking about the green yarns in my inventory and how the shades are often inspired by nature. So to further my tribute to Green, and its many hues, I present More Green!
Karabella's Soft Tweed color 1110
A dark rich forest green. Yarn 1 Ply Merino Worsted color Spring
A happy mix of fresh Spring Green and new shoot Yellow.
Cascade 220 Superwash color 841Moss Green
A delicate mossy green.
Berroco Suede color 3786 Aloe Vera
Think New Mexico and lime, a burst of summer.
Schaefer Anne Dian Fossey
A tribute to this American Zoologist and the time she spent in the mountain rain forests in Rwanda working with gorillas.
Schaefer Lola Elizabeth Zimmerman
This master knitter was a huge advocate for knitting in the round, I'm not sure if her favorite color was green, but this colorway is gorgeous!
Berroco Lullaby 4207 Quince
A delicious fruit related to apples & pears with a delicate green cast.
Berroco Ultra Alpaca 6249 Fennel
Fennel yields both a herb and spice and is used as a savory addition to meats and sauces.
Berroco Ultra Alpaca 6247 Fern
This ancient plant still thrives today and is loved for its refreshing beauty.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and OM gosh! I absolutely love green! It is the color I am most drawn to. Yesterday at WEBS, I picked up 4 news yarns in various green shades! There is a rav group devoted to green...
