For example, the Internet needs to take a look at the stained glass lamp that hung beside my Grandfather's chair. All of the grandkids (and probably great-grandkids) learned their colors by sitting on his lap and pointing to the different glass in that lamp. I would like to own a replica, and yet the Internet can't seem to figure out the exact lamp we're looking for.
Also, there's a green--a glorious, grassy green that makes me happy. The Internet needs to look at that green and find me yarn in that color.
It's sort of like this:
(Don't ask. I'm not sure what it is.) But it's not quite that.
And it's sort of like this:
But it's not quite that. When I saw this cardigan, the Burdock cardigan from the book November Knits and also Interweave Knits Winter 2012 edition, I loved it immediately. I then realized that although the pattern is cute, what I really loved was the green.
But it's not quite the right green.
There is a distinct possibility that the green in my head doesn't really exist, that it's just a huge collection of not this and not that.
If anyone knows of a great green that's sort of kelly but not too yellow and not too blue, let me know.
The Internet can't.
