The green is going to stay due to popular vote. The colors remind me of the Carribean and of Northern Lights. A quick images.google.com lookup lead to this wonderful Northern Lights in Norway I envy Norwegian knitting skills and Norwegians can actually use woolies, so Norwegian Northern Lights it is.
Next dye project will probably be with Kona Superwash DK and Wilton's Greens or ProChem OneShot. I like how the Kona feels once washed.
