why not buy green yarn?

Posted on: June 2, 2007

That was the question posed by one of my daughters friends as she walked through the kitchen where I had the crock pot going with some yarn! I went to a thrift store yesterday and found 2 very old skeins of Brown Sheep yarn for 50 cents a skein. One of them was a cream color (the labels had numbers for the colors) and the other a sick brownish,pinkish ick! I used some burgundy food coloring in a burgundy tint (found this package of fall colors a while back…only time I have ever seen it) but wasn’t happy with the way it was looking so I added some Wilton’s purple to it. I think the color is much improved dont you agree?

The green was made using forest green, black and orange for a sage color according to the directions. I think its sorta looks like spinach but I like it! I love green that has the sage tint to it.

So now I need to decide what to knit out of these beauties! I have 190 yards of each. Its 15%mohair & 85% virgin wool…….any ideas?
