I wasn't even sure I would like these when I sat down to sew this morning. But hey, I love green.

This one is slightly smaller, and I ran out of the grey with stripes. But I filled in with two other greys from my stock.

Well, not really buckskin, but that's the color. This one is lambswool. Nice and soft.

Here's the back, showing that fantastic belt which brings out the green in the sweater. The wool has hints of green, linen, and even a slight yellow shade.

I love the dark colors in this one. A red wine merino and a plaid skirt with a mix of colors to complement.

Ecru, Caramel, Beige, Tan, Brown Sugar?

I ended up with a bunch of sweaters in similar shades. This was the first one. A very thin, tightly felted, flat knit, 'coarse to the touch' wool in ecru.

And I just finished this one- a super thick cable knit felted lambswool. Fuzzy wuzzy was a...felted sweater. This one is brown sugar. And they are lovely, but I'm getting sick of this color, whatever it is.
