easy being green

Flutter scarf I'm knitting, Alpaca Sox yarn, 1/3 complete, looking forward to the amazing transformation that comes with blocking. More green and less gray than it appears here.
Historic miniature gaming battle with a group Jesse and Scott belong to. All green with no snow on that battlefield? Clearly a fantasy game!
Fun and funky felted green hat created by a fellow knitter and spinner at Second Sunday Fiber Artisans.
Four of at least 10 spinning wheels in motion at Sunday's gathering. Notice that porch door hanging wide open in the background? It was almost 50ยบ outside! Even though blooms are still months away and it got pretty chilly later in the afternoon, you could practically smell the green in the air and nobody wanted to close that door!
And at night, a thoroughly enjoyable planetarium show and jaw-dropping views of the nearly full moon through rooftop telescopes. No little green men or their spaceships visible, though. :-)

Cool! Which planetarium did you go to? When we were kids, my parents would take us to CCSU for their shows. I still love planetariums and don't go often enough.

Enjoyed your post.

Am late on uploading photos, will be about another week, but sweater #1 is done and has been worn multiple times.

Am reading "At Knit's End" and loving it.

Did a hat yesterday while at HS skiing.

Loving knitting. Thank you again for teaching me.

Can't wait to see the finished scarf - the unblocked UFO is very pretty!

It is warm here, too. I actually went outside wearing only my Clapotis . . . well, and my clothes.

With the warm temps here, I'm seeing green - as in grass instead of snow.

LOVED the post because, frankly, I'm feeling starved for GREEN!
