Last night I was about to try again with Armytage, but going through the stash for the previous one I had pulled out everything green, just on a whim. Mmmm, greeny.
One or two green yarns are missing from this picture.
This time as soon as I started knitting I was loving the combination. I even knocked it up a notch with a couple of rounds of that weird furry stuff, which is a (probably discontinued) Lincraft yarn called Merry-go-round - essentially it's Cookie Monster with added glitter. 97% wool, would you believe?
Edited next day after helpful comments and a good sleep:
Oops, I was picturing Oscar the grouch, when I typed Cookie Monster. We are talking about green, after all.
Even though my felting stash is not at all small (with particular thanks to Taph and Spidey) I don't think there is any other colour that is hanging about in the stash in such bountiful variety. I really like having a good colour range. Conclusion? Keep stashing!
