I didn't see the green in the yarn the other day, and I didn't see the yellow in this:
In fact, I still don't see it. In any sort of light. I took the picture because the zig-zags really appeal to me. Also, I've never minded variegated yarn pooling. It fascinates me, to tell the truth. This is a Plymouth Yarns worsted that is actually rather soft and nice to work with. In my life of experience with yarn --- both before and after I started knitting --- so much acrylic worsted felt like cardboard. When I was going through things at my parents' house, I came across so many sweaters that were scratchy and stiff. Of course, that's all I knew; Mama only worked with really good yarns when making things for the knit shop. She was a pennysaver extraordinaire. I never shared current yarn prices with her --- she would have been aghast.
If you're interested in a cute baby hat, may I suggest this from Stitch & Story:
I made this last night. It needs to go to a baby with some head control: that pom-pom could tip someone over.
