In Honor of

St. Patrick's Day, it was suggested that I knit a pair of Irish inspired socks. What a great idea! The only problem is I can't decide which green yarn I want to use. I have four choices for all my followers to check out and decide. Your opinions matter. I have chosen the design from Ravelry. They are called St. Brigid's Carnamoyle Stockings by Lahome Nally-Kaye. I love the cables and all the details. So below you will see all the green yarns that are more or less solid green. Some have subtle shading and others are solid. So let me know what you guys like. I love green so no matter what it will be a win/win situation for me!

Here is the group shot of all four greens. This is a teal sort of green and is by Tess' Designer Yarns

This yarn is by Yarn Tattoo. My friend Peg has a dye lab and she made this green called Celtic Green. It has different shades of green in it.

And the last one is from Schaefer Yarn Abigail. It's a more lime green color which is called Laura Hobson

Lastly this is Bright by Spirit Trail Fiberworks. This green is a more earthy green. So what do you all think? Those of you are not members of Ravelry will not be able to link but you can still weigh in with your pick of green for my March socks. Thanks in advance for everyone's help!

Hands down, Yarn Tattoo is my favorite of all the yarns but....the sock design will show up best with a solid yarn. If the color variation is subtle enough then no problem, Yarn Tattoo. If not, then solely based on the sock pattern I would go for the more solid Schaefer Yarn....the other two choices are too blue for Irish...JMNSHO!!
