Vernal green

My mother knit this for me for Christmas, and its warmth has rarely been cast off since! But the colour is really starting to shine now that Spring has been coming! The actual colour is very like the lovely yarn shown at the Quiet Home today. In it I confess to feeling like this:

And would you believe that as I type PC has just floated in on a cloud of finally having found a new tech coat, and it is also in vernal green!
So that's my Alphabe-Thursday-on-Friday-again for the very difficult letter V! What I really wanted to post about was this, but it would hardly have been the most original dream!

V is a great letter- you could have had Violent Vicars in the Vestry, wearing Violet Vests, penning Very Vulgar Verses!

But I love all that green stuff- wonderfully springlike. Your Mum is obviously a great knit!

I love green. I am always so glad to see it again when Spring comes. Happy Spring!

ooh I love the outfit that girl is wearing. I think I may even have to put one together just like it. We are spring here in New England but there is still quite a bit of snow on the ground. It makes me a little crazy to have to put winter clothing on still.

What an absolutely lovely color. This is beautiful. A gift that will last for so long. Your Mom certainly found a way to keep your heart warm!

I'm off to read your other post, but I wanted to thank you first for this vibrant link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "V".
