Too Easy Being Green

Every once in a while, I get on a knitting jag.  It's exactly like the two year old who will only eat peas and scrambled eggs for a week.  Sometimes it's obvious, like when I actually do knit the same sweater or socks or hat three or four times before it's out of my system, and sometimes it's more subtle. 

This morning, as I was taking way too many pictures of a scarf, I realized that I'm in the middle of another one. 

Perhaps it's a reaction to spring, and a long drab winter.

Perhaps it's how much I love watching my garden leaf out and come into bloom.

Perhaps I'm just thrilled that the summer is coming -

but I simply can't stop knitting green.

A green willow sweater and now I've finished this little scarf- pale green with little leaves tracking along.

I wasn't entirely convinced that I was really committed to a knitting jag until I put down my sock in progress for a quick photo too.

More green. More leaves.  I might be a little obsessed with an attempt to knit myself a garden.   Maybe I should consider a few flowers and get off the leaf kick?
