    I pretty much know going in that nobody is really going to get a good match to Wilsons colours without custom dye charges. If I go with another mill, I'll have to pick one of their Muted, Weathered, or other greens from their standard yarn selections that will get me close. Really what I'm after is something with more visual interest than the dark green of Modern colours.

    I mean, I'd love to have a perfect Wilsons set of colours, but I ain't made of money. So I'll just have to do my best with an approximation that still looks different from the usual Modern hues. And if somehow I can finagle HoE into doing the 18oz run, my options may be even more limited. Worst case, I default back to Modern colours for that. I'll have to trade the colours for the weight.
