to the power of green

This week has been all about green for me. My first try at sage green left me with a very nice shade of grey… I gave it a rest and the next day everything became clear. I love sage green so much that ALL the woodwork in my loft is painted in two shades of it.

Which brings me to Wish #2:

Wish #2, just like Wish #1, contains a very powerful and good wish. There are only four skeins, and this colour way will not be repeated.

Did I mention that I love grey green?

Mixed with rust…

And that brings me to Wish #3. It contains a wish so powerful that it could only be made once. 100 grams of powerful good green wish.

Mme Wishbone is taking a two week break to go to the mountains and the sea, in search of more green inspiration.

See you soon!

I dyed up two skeins – one a lot less intense than the other, but a tonal match.

The colours on glistening Wishbone Sock (100% twisted Merino) reminded me of sunlight on bluebottles. I was petrified of them when I was small because I once emerged from the sea with a string of them around my tummy – ouch!  But I was drawn to their beauty nonetheless.

I  melded the colours in the by alternating them every second row for eight rows. The pattern is by one of my favourite designers – Simone Eich.

Simone is a synaesthete – she sees numbers and words in colour!
