Yesterday I began knitting Master S his fingerless mitts. We are loving our close-by yarn shop in Sassafras. I allowed the boys to chose their yarn for mitts and a beanie - I tried to influence their choice - to no avail. Master S continues to choose green. I remember when he just under two, we were shopping for a lunch box for him to take to Early Intervention. I naturally always chose blue - I like blue. He spoke some of his first words; "green". He wanted a green lunch box. Green is clearly his favorite colour - bordering on obsession.
He still chooses green lunch boxes.
He chose some green yarn to knit these, ravelled here (just changed the wrist border to rib).
We had to paint his bedroom wall the same green as the old house before moving into our 'Simple Life' house.
This was the old bedroom... (the home-made bean bag had to be green too - I managed to incorporate polka dots!)
He still wears his green beanie his Gran knitted him when he was 4 - albeit not everywhere these days...
... just to bed.
All in all, green is probably one of the most common colours in the world - it's all I can see from our windows. I had best go, Master S is beckoning me to finish the other mitt!
I found this wonderful website this morning - so excited to check it out some more when I have time. Thought you might like it too.
Much Love Rach xo
