A mini-vacay is the perfect time to play in the yarn stash and stitch dictionaries. This yarn recently arrived and is from Skein.

This is a new to me fiber artist and I'm totally smitten with her colorscapes. This color is Dapple, and I can totally see light coming through a dense canopy of branches to bounce off the leaves from the foliage below. Of course, in my mind's eye, it's autumn foliage!

I asked Mr. NK to pick a color for the next pair of socks, he picked green...I picked this skein.

Did you know that Green is:

Relaxing mentally as well as physically
Helps alleviate depression, nervousness and anxiety
Offers a sense of renewal, self-control and harmony

A perfect color for winter! :)

Green is the prime color of the world,
and that from which its loveliness arises.
~Pedro Calderon de la Barca

Ok you and Camilla and I must be on the same wavelink because she has sent green magnolia that has some of the same colors and I am working with it right now.
Your blog is so refreshing today! I love thinking about green.
Is in not wonderful to have some time off, I am enjoying my time off way too much!

I just discovered Skein recently as well! Thank goodness I found her when I did and was able to make two orders before the great yarn diet of 2011! I got dapple in lace and I can't wait to use it.

Hmmmm - from unavailable yarn to unavailable patterns! What am I going to do with you, NK Woman??!!! Beautiful yarn and photos but, not sure if it can save you from a "poop" comment!
Hugs, laughs, and wish for a happy/poopy New Year.
You know who.

That is a lovey colorspace. I haven't run across Skein before. I shall have to look into it!
