It's Not Easy Being Green

"It's not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things.
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water - or stars in the sky.

But green's the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain, or tall like a tree."

an excerpt from Green by Kermit the Frog and Jim Henson

This song was the first thing I thought of when "Green" was announced as the theme of the week. I remember where I was when I first heard the song. We were living in Erie, Pennsylvania. I was still in elementary school. Kermit sang the song on TV while sitting in a canoe in the middle of a pond. The song fascinated me. I wanted to hear it over and over again. Many years went by and except for our trip to Disney World, I never heard the song again until last year. During one of my shopping sprees on High Street in Pottstown, I found an old LP titled The Sesame Street Book & Record. Not only did I buy the LP for myself right then and there, but I went on an extensive search to buy the very same record for my cousin.

Below is a small sampling of Etsy Knitter members using Kermit's trademark color.
