it ain’t easy being green…

But b.Limey! IT’s MARCH already and it’s the perfect month for Verdigris, Envy, and GO!

“Green is favored by well balanced people. Green symbolizes the master healer and the life force. It often symbolizes money. It was believed green was healing for the eyes. Egyptians wore green eyeliner. Green eyeshades are still used. You should eat raw green foods for good health. Friday is the day of green. Green jade is a sacred stone of Asia.”
…from the Make it SO website

And it’s going to be my glorious goal this month to romp around in as much green as I can get my hands on… Being a Lime Freak, this won’t be too difficult but just to get off to a lucky start, I unwound a couple of languishing green articles that were moldering in the Stash Palace.

No Longer Backstage:

FERN – a lovely design using Filaturea di Crosa ZARA color 1660. This one just couldn’t get me going! I love the pattern but the yarn was wrong for me – not drapey enough – and I was afraid I didn’t have enough to finish the whole thing…

NONAME – a miscreant machine project that made it to the SLEEVES DONE~! level but failed to excite to the finish. OFF WITH ITs THread! – a lovely merino/microfiber blend called Rubino from Austermann color #21.

What really got me going on this little b.Lime Romp? Watching the Oscars, during the first song sung in French by ChicKnits House Diva BEYONCE, I was slapped upside the head by her YELLOW GREEN EYESHADOW that Jumped Off the Screen and right into my Living Room! The Chartreuse on this Chantuese was the key that unlocked my green block and WOOT! There it is…

Overheard at Silvia’s via Television Without Pity : “6:03 PM PT – Damn, Beyonce, leave some eye shadow for the rest of us…”

BTW – it snowed over two inches last night, and I believe, CABIN FEVER Reigns SUPREME!
