Forest green, evergreen, pine green, spruce. Whatever it is, it's very much a woodsy sort of green.
Maybe because of that, it's the green I associate the most with winter. Images of snow-covered forests and holiday decorations first to come to mind, but worn hardcovers of vintage books, awnings of cozy neighborhood coffee shops, storefronts on old high streets pop into my mind as well. Road signs too-- though not quite so dark-- that would lead me to a friend's house or on a new road trip... It all reminds me of those autumn/winter activities I enjoyed back in my university days. In fact, it brings back memories of academia itself-- of chalkboards, textbooks, bookbags, school blazers and plush reading chairs in the library.
This green suits warm handknits too-- or maybe, warm handknits suit this green? With temperatures falling a little more day by day, it's nice to be working with wool again. As in the past, these wristwarmers come in two styles: elegant + simple.
