Since I was very young, I have always claimed "green" as my favorite color. But it was always a very specific color that I was after, like the green from the crayon box. However, I really appreciated seeing all the greens while surrounded by Nature, in the woods, on drives, around the cabin we vacationed in.

When presented with various specific and different shades of green however, I was extremely particular. Not one was good enough for me to love and claim as part of the palette of color that was supposedly my favorite.
A quick review of my Ravelry page shows that I have knit one dark blue-green and red shawl, a Slytherin scarf for a brother-in-law, a hat that contained remnants, and an Ariel scarf for a friend. 73 projects, only four of them green. And green is listed as my favorite color on my profile here too...
So when my swap package showed up at the end of February with a green skein of Malabrigo Rios (Colorway 128 Fresco y Seco), I definitely said, hummmmmmmm...
