I love it, so soft!!! Also the fact that it's not one solid color, hey, I don't know the technical term...um..would one say semi-solidness??

I just spun something with the same color name and seriously nearly the same color. Isn't it beautiful??

Ooh that yarn is lovely... I would love to see Pearl's Socks in that! I too am stuck finishing older projects these days... but I want to knit red things!

Love the green! I think green is always one of my favorites!

That is some gorgeous yarn! It'll be the perfect yarn for Pearl's Diamond socks.

Green is one of my favorite colors, but I hardly ever knit with it - gotta fix that.

oh my, love the green! I have had a new affection for all things sport weight lately - well, this gorgeous stuff is NO exception! Thanks for sharing!

I'm also on a green kick. That yarn is gorgeous! I love yarns that are variations of the same color, that way, the pattern doesn't get overpowered.
