The search for the perfect green...

I have been looking for the perfect green for a project for about 4 months. Here are some of the contenders:

The Knitting Goddess
100% 4ply Silk - the top skein is a lovely soft green and one of Joy's base yarns rather than one of her dyed yarns. Sadly this green seems to be sold out but I did get two skeins, one of which became Pergola

Laughing Yaffle semi-solid sock in Lark Ascending

Wool blend laceweight dyed with Kool Aid by TessVintageKnits on Ravelry

Old Maiden Aunt Superwash Merino in Eat Your Greens

YarnAddict Yarns Fantasy Sock
in Parade

An unknown merino blend laceweight from a street market in Aveiro, Portugal. This was quite a find and cost a whole E2.50 and there's loads of it

Whilst only the top one made the cut for Pergola, the others are all lovely yarns and will be perfect for other projects. Until then they can sit about looking pretty (and being squished from time to time)

What a visual feast! I love the soft silvery sage greens - the merino from Portugal is just delicious!
