Been thinking about going green for a while now.
No, not the noble way of going green to make this world a better place but knitting from my green stash type of going green. I think that I’m too boring to be a tree-hugger. Although, I try to do my bit by recycling and being mindful of not being wasteful – now that’s a mouthful!
Speaking of tree hugging, I once saw this group of tree huggers in Tofino getting ready to do some serious rallying about saving the forests. It was something else!!! That was back when hemp was still a whispered word. Now, we knitters, we knit with hemp.
So, I’ve been looking at all the knitting that I have been doing lately and it seems like most of it is pink. My Ravelry projects page can attest to the fact that I like this color and it’s host of cousins. Funny that, because I have all of this other stash which is NOT pink but I when I think of casting on for a new project, I always seem to gravitate towards the rosy colors.
I was thinking that the best way to nuke this pink streak was to knit with some Malabrigo Green Apple that I have. Talk about putting some zing into my knitting projects!
But I don’t feel like knitting a hat right now which is what this traffic-stopping-yarn is going to be someday, no..wait, red makes traffic stop, green makes things go, right? Bwah!
Instead, I’m going to use DIC Smooshy’s Happy Forest which will be perfect for a pair of green socks, no? Off to stalk Ravelry for pattern possibilities, that should take…um…five days at least!!!
