Unlucky Green For Knitting Project

I have been meaning to knit a green jumper for over a year.  I first sarted this bizarre activity after buying a gorgeous laura ashley skirt in a charity shop.  It’s one I have coveted for a couple of years and was so amazed when my local heart shop had exactly the skirt in my size.  This cost me £4.90.  The skirt has a plain charcoal background with large circles of different colours – apple green, lime yellow and dark blue.  I wanted to pick out the green and have bought a couple of cardigans and jumpers, only to find they’re nothing like the shade.  So I ordered some wool on this site.  The first lot was out by miles, so I tried again.  This was much better. Then I needed a good pattern, so several were acquired from a local knitting shop, together with a variety of needles.  Grand total is in the region of £76.00 and I’ve still got to knit the flaming thing!
