yum.. avocado

hello everyone! i just received my yarn yesterday! i decided to buy it from ebay as they had the best price and a wide variety of colors (my LYS doesn't carry cotton fleece). this color, avocado, seems hard to come by but it looks very much like a few of the other greens i've seen. it'll be the first green thing that i've knit and how appropriate that it's "green" gables... and does anyone else out there love anne of green gables? every time i think of knitting this item i harken back to my teenage years of pouring over the anne books.

anyway, i won't be starting on this till may 1st at the very least. i have to finish my sockapaloooza socks and be done with a scarf before i can knit on this. i'll post again when i have progress..

oh.. here's that yarn i was talking about ;)



EDITED TO ADD: here is a link to the ebay seller that i got my yarn from... good prices and fast shipment in case your LYS doesn't sell cotton fleece.

Nice color! I wonder if it was the same ebay seller I got mine. A great deal I think! :)

Ooh, I like that color! I had the hardest time deciding between the dusty sage and malibu blue, then after finally deciding on and ordering the blue, I forgot and thought I'd ordered the green. It was quite a surprise when I opened the box!

yeah, i like this color though i think that they just named it avocado as it was mill 2nds of some other green color. regardless, it's nice :)

I went to the ebay seller because I am thinking of making the green gable..all of the brown sheep yarn says unevenly dyed:?Is this a problem? what exactly does this mean?
