Emerald 2013

Written by Sarah on January 2nd, 2013 Posted in design, holiday, knits, style, want, yarn

Happy New Year, everyone! How did you ring in the new year? We ate tacos and drank champagne in the couch, while overdosing on Law and Order: SVU. Sometimes I’m embarrassed by how much of an old lady I am but I love it.

Did you know that this year’s Pantone color is Emerald? Expect to see lots of emerald accessories! If you’re looking to add a little more of this year’s color to your wardrobe, check out these emerald yarns!


1. Spud and Chloe Sweater in Billiard
2. Briggs and Little Tuffy in Paddy Green
3. Quince and Co Osprey in Cypress
4. Malabrigo Lace Merino in Emerald
5. Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted in Douglas Fir

I don’t really own any emerald (not since I played Aunt Em in a high school performance of Wizard of Oz) but I think I might cast on some emerald mittens. Maybe a hat? I’m certainly overdue for both. Knitting accessories is the perfect way to add a little bit of trendiness to your wardrobe without going overboard.

Will you be knitting with emerald this year? What’s your favorite emerald colorway?

    Well, this will surely be great for my little sis, who looks simply stunning in anything emerald! I’ll have to let her know!

      I’m a little shy about wearing emerald myself! It’s a strong color!

    I’m so excited for the year of Emerald! Such a gorgeous colour. I don’t have anything specifically emerald at the moment but I’d love knit myself a cardigan in #1. x

      That is a lovely idea! I love cardigans!

    I guess I will be in trend this year. My stash has been having an affair with green yarns for the last 6 months. I’m sure some emerald is hidden in there somewhere.

      Yay! Can’t wait to see your emerald knits!
