just so green

It just so happens that my new project is green.  
And it just so happens that one day this will become
this.  One day.  
Have yourself a wonderful weekend!

wow......love the green.

Alison said...

Oh, LOVE. That is gorgeous yarn, gorgeous colour, and a gorgeous pattern! Although I feel that someone with -ahem- hips like mine should probably not wear a peplum (which is obviously no reason for anyone else to avoid them!)

Sorry - I'm a chronic lurker and I don't think I've commented before. I'm Alison, and I stumbled across your blog a couple of weeks ago. No idea how! But I love it. :) Your photos and your words both.

stitching under oaks said...

looks like lots of tiny stitches to me...What size are those needles? It will be lovely when you finish it! The color is perfect! Green is one of my favorite colors.

MadMad said...

What gorgeous yarn! It's funny; I started a green sweater, too, and almost, almost thought it was the same yarn! That would have been funny - instead of just copying you all the time, I'd be turning into you! Or something. Anyway, mine was Elsebeth Lavold, so... not the same. But still. I'm getting there! Just call me mini-me. (Or mini-you.) (Well, more like maxi.) OK. Maybe I shouldn't post comments after a second glass of wine. Nightie-night.

iknitipurl said...

Very pretty design, I really like the pleats on the bottom.

Go green! :)

Maryse said...

Green's a great color at this time of the year where everything is white and pale and fade... Looking forward to spring!!! Very nice combination of colors in that yarn. It looks promising!

Stephanie said...

I love the way the sweater flares out at the bottom. You really pick some great patterns, very modern designs. Happy Knitting!

APA said...

You, my friend, will look stylin' in your spring green these warm & wonderful days that lie ahead of us. What a soft, gentle, LIFE color! You've an eye for the good stuff. Jam the weekend! :)

Poshyarns said...

Oooh, very nice shade of green and yet again you are knitting something that I would like to wear. You have such good taste!

KnittySue said...

Great green and pattern, can't wait to see it. I have a question...will there ever be a Libby sweater in an adult size? I have a granddaughter that is the size of the pattern but her sister is tall and would need an adult size. Your work is beautiful...I've made about 20 of your toasty mitts, they are a much loved gift.

pricklypearbloom said...

ooh! That is a great green.

Hadley Gets Crafty said...

I love the peplum on that cardigan.

I have a Spring cardigan of a similar color that, I am ashamed to say, I began LAST Spring. For shame...

Your weblog is fine. I simply need to touch upon the design. Its too loud. Its doing way an excessive amount of and it takes away from what youve bought to say --which I feel is de facto important. I dont know if you happen to didnt suppose that your phrases could hold everyones attention, however you have been wrong. Anyway, in my language, there usually are not a lot good source like this.
