Show Me The Green!

Posted on Posted in projects


Happy Summer, guys!  It’s just beautiful out there!  The sun is shining, the sky is clear, the grass is green.  I think the only thing that would make this day better would be if I was sitting pool-side as I write this post.  Oh, and if the pool boy/cabana boy was super cute with six-pack abs, perfect tan, great smile, nice package… … …  nice package…  …


Oh, right – and a Caipirinha within arms reach.


Yes, please.  Could someone make that happen?!  Thx!

See, Green means different things to everyone.  And maybe depending on your mood, your view of green changes.  I suppose right now, I’m in this tropical, beachy, free-spirited, zest-for-life type of mood.

Earlier this week I asked a few of the girls at the office, including Anne – what IS IT about Green?  What brings about the feelings and memories associated with this particular color?





Me:  I thought of Pesto initially.  Then I started thinking of World of Warcraft Scenery.  You think I’m kidding.  I’m serious.  Serious as a goose.  <That’s serious.  Ask me if I was Horde or Alliance.  (No, better yet, ask me which side I preferred.)

And as silly as it is, (to reference a horribly addicting computer game) it doesn’t seem far from where Anne’s mind is in terms of the color itself.  I don’t want to steal any of her thunder.  This club is one that she’s been looking forward to forever it seems.  So, without further ado – let me show you what she was able to show me:


This week Anne had the opportunity to get-a-way!  She’s at her friend’s house in NYC.  She’s hiding away.  She’s in creative-mode.  And it all sounds most exciting and intriguing doesn’t it?  As I type, she’s creating the designs that will be offered to you guys within just a few short weeks, once the Envy Club begins to ship out!

The picture above was taken at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.  Anne mentioned that she got caught in a rainstorm, which happens to be the whole theme of the trip.  But, in my opinion – it makes the trip all that more enchanting,  especially just knowing this when viewing the photo that she sent.


“i don’t really know why i like green so much; i just always have. i can’t remember a time when it wasn’t my favorite color.”

Anne jokes that it used to look really good on her before her hair went gray and then turned to white.”   The girls at the office unanimously agreed that Anne can still and will always be able to pull off any shade of green.

“it’s david’s favorite color too, so we never argue about what we like in furnishings, haha!”


Anne says that green is “the color of light, earth, and origins.”  It symbolizes life, freshness, and growth.  I won’t deny that.  My mind plays with that.  Rebirth.  New beginnings.  Awakening.  Creating.  Challenging.  Depth.  Strength.  Hunger.  Ambition.

Enchantment. Mysticism. Sorcery?  Magic, definitely.  It’s inviting.  Captivating.  It lures you in.  You can’t help but stare.  It’s sexy.  It’s haunting.  It’s undeniably alluring.  “Come in…”


It’s the Garden of Eden.  It’s the Kiss of Death.

I’m excited because there are a few things I can share with you guys that we haven’t been able to disclose before…

You ready?  Lean in close, I’ll whisper it in your ear …

Oh, you know I can’t do that.  Haha!  I don’t want to spoil the fun for anyone.  Anne’s got some great stories lined up.  Some surprising takes on shapes and sizes.  We’re working with fabulous dyers to bring you some of the coolest greens you’ve ever laid your eyes on.  This club is friendly for every knitter out there.  There’s nothing too advanced and there isn’t anything that’s so beginner you’re going to feel bored.  We’ve got you covered on all fronts.  And did I mention, the colors are exquisite!!!???  

The club sign-ups will OFFICIALLY close on JULY 1st.  There’s only one thing left to do…

  1. I ache with longing to participate; green is my absolute favourite colour! Alas the funds are simply not there so I will be on the sidelines. One could even say I am green with envy :-P. I really look forward to seeing all the packages as they are revealed.

  2. I don’t know whether it was the pool boy/cabana boy in a sweater or the green font. But I couldn’t resist any longer. I’ve never been a member of a yarn club, and I thought I had the stamina to resist this very tempting opportunity. And I did, before this post that was written by someone who has all the talent of a Don Draper.
