four: perfection

I am on a little bit of a quest at the moment.

It's a quest for perfection.
Perfection in the form of yarn.
Perfection, more specifically, in the form of the perfect yellow yarn. Dk weight preferably. Organic would be the ultimate.

Now what makes the perfect yellow yarn?
It needs to be the colour of sunshine, no pastels, no neons, no orange or brown undertones; just pure sunshine.

This comes pretty close on all counts.

It's dk, it's organic and it is very lush!

As does this, except it's not a dk or organic:(
(malabrigo worsted)

this one would win hands down, except it's not organic.

This is pretty close too; organic, lovely colour. Local organic even, yet a 10 ply.

Now what to knit with all this luscious yellow?
