The thing about green is...
It's the perfect backdrop for nature's beauty and bounty.
With a cherry on top! Or at the bottom. Cherries are good in just about any location.

Project Spectrum June=Green knitting update: I have finished the body of the sweater and three-needle joined it at the shoulders. I knit most of a sleeve and it became very clear that I'd not have enough for the other. I ripped it, weighed the yarn, and split it in two. My solution to the yarn shortage is to use my worsted weight test skeins to horizontally stripe, while knitting both sleeves a thte same time. There's something of a general stripe effect overall (pattern/vertical, yarn/horizontal) which is working in my favor. The sleeves will definitely be more green but, given the theme, that works too! It's a bit of a mess at the moment, but I'll have photos soon.
gah, amazing photos. so verdant. the perfect season to explore green.

Those are such gorgeous photos, Vicki! And I love your watermarks, too. I really need to get on the stick and make one for myself.

June is the perfect month for Project Spectrum green, isn't it? Lovely photos, as always. Sounds like a creative and effective save on the sweater!
