Knit Green Socks & Project Spectrum 2.0

As I was reading through some blogs the other day, I can across a Green Sock Knit Along that Lolly and Maritza started. The great thing about this knit along is there is only one rule - knit green socks. No time limits - no sign ups - nothing. Just knit green socks. There is even a cool green sock button to grab for your blog!
I just had to check to see if I had any green sock yarn in the stash - and I did. I was actually surprised how many skeins of sock yarn I had that have some green in them. But there is enough green (or mostly green) sock yarn in my stash for three pair of socks. I have some Opal hand painted, Koigu KPPM, and some Sock Candy. These skeins aren't solid green - but I think all three have enough green in them to be considered green.

So if you have some green sock yarn stashed away -cast on a pair!

I also joined Project Spectrum 2.0. Project Spectrum starts February 1st and will run through September. The time will be divided into two month periods and each period will have three colors assigned. You can focus on one or all the colors for that period in any type of art or craft you choose. There is Project Spectrum Flickr Group so you can see all the photos people take of their projects.

The color assignments will be as follows:


Blue, White, Gray


Green, Yellow, Pink


Red, Black, Metallics

August / September

Brown, Orange, Purple

I'm not sure yet how much of my knitting will revolve around the colors each month. My first thought is to try and take photos that represent the color selections. Looks like the color selections will work out well for nature and outside pictures. Maybe I can try and take some arty shots too. We'll have to see how this works out, but it sounds like fun.

Good luck on the green socks. I'm sure I will see you around on Flickr, as I will be casting on for my green socks soon. (And I agree with bezzie that the Opal is droolworthy)
