local colorway

Here are fingerless mitts I've been knitting. I like how they look but couldn't figure out why I like the colors together.

Until I paid attention to what I like looking at around the 'hood.

Simple minded ? or inspired? You be the judge......hey! be nice!

For the record, the odd green is a skein of vintage Brown Sheep, from when they used to have 100% wool, originally natural colored, dyed with koolaid, and the brown is Alfa Maskin Vaskbar, a Norwegian wool/mohair blend.

Perhaps a bit of yearning for Spring as well? Looks like fresh earth and young plants to me. At any rate, the colors do look lovely together in the mitts and the photography.
