The Color: This yarn evokes images of mythical beasts: dragons, monsters, trolls and more! It’s a blend of the darkest hunter green with hints of Kelly green and sage.
The Name: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is my favorite medieval story. The Green Knight--who is completely green, from skin and hair to clothing--rides into Arthur's court and challenges the knights to a contest: anyone there can accept his axe and use it to strike a blow to the Green Knight. A year later, the Green Knight gets to return the blow. Gawain accepts the challenge and proceeds to cut off the Green Knight's head. But rather than killing the Green Knight, he picks up his head and rides back out of the court, telling Gawain that he'll see him next year. How will Gawain be able to receive the return blow without dying?
