Name That Skein!



Here's another one that I thought y'all could help me with: varying shades of emeralds, teals with a touch of creamy white.




Same colorway in multiple bases. What do you think it should be called? I'll pick my favorite and the person who suggests it will get a free skein!
Feel free to enter every idea you come up with - just means more chances to win!

***Make sure you leave some way for me to contact you - your email, ravelry username or etsy username.

I'll choose a winner on November 26th, so I can have them up and listed in the shop in time for our post-Thanksgiving mega sale.
