YPF-Repurposed Yarn Version

Remember this frogging incident. Well, along with this gorgeous, green Bamboo Wool, this Noro Silk Garden #87 will become (with the help of a few more skeins on the way) a Poppy Sweater. When this sweater first came out, I was a bit meh about it. But on closer look the style is just the type I need. Good ol' V neck. The best part was swapping some yarn that had yellow in it hehe..for the book!

It was a hard decision to either highlight the mauve or darker blue colors..I finally decided on the green. Funny thing is they had the wild caribbean blue, but ick...I don't look good in that color at all...like it and if it was for my feet, I'd go for it...but my body..um..nope!

Stay tuned...

I love the green with that Silk Garden. I'll probably see your version of poppy and have to knit one too. It's going to be great!

That's going to look fantastic! The green in the Moda Dea yarn works perfectly with the green in the Noro. I can't wait to see your progress!

That's going to be gorgeous in those colors! I was initially "meh" about the pattern as well, but I saw one freshly completed at SPA this weekend and IT.IS.BEAUTIFUL and very flattering. It's going on my queue.
