What’s this? A garment actually being made with Green Yarn?

And this is no ordinary green yarn – this is Sale Green Yarn. And it is a very sassy Yellow-Green Yarn. AND, it is made out of something that we haven’t tried before – viscose & acrylic.

Viscose is very common in clothing in Europe, less so in the US. It is made from wood pulp (cellulose) so me thinking is that since I’m actually in the Pine Forests it is fitting that I Knit with Wood…

    You know how much I love that color! I can’t wait to see what it knits up to be.

    I like your thinking. Maybe you could arrange for a rendez-vous with Tuck and all the forest sprites. Love the color!

    Hmm, what are you making? A sassy summer sweater? An eye-catching cardigan? Can’t wait to see the results!

    I want to knit something in green. Right now I’m finishing up Cherry Twist (a Knitty pattern) and have the next project lined up (Picovoli in black Cathay), but I really like green and your sweater is inspiring me. Lots of ideas but not enough time. What’s a knitter to do?

    What is it going to grow up to be?

    OMG, what a yummy color. But question — is viscose related to rayon?

    You’re such a tease…what’s it gonna be?!?

    I’m so glad you’re back to green! It’s just not the same around here without a little b.Limey action…

    I like viscose … it makes very comfortable summer wear.

    That’s going to be stunning on you, whatever it is! Green is your color.

    Tangy & beautiful, those two shades together. I see cables! Another favorite thing o’mine, cables.

    Oh, a perfect Project Spectrum knit! ;) I have some yarns with viscose, but never knew exactly what it was – thanks for sharing.

    Hope you are doing well~
