Shades of Grey

Once again, my knitting picture appears to be dominated by grey yarn *laughs*



Good thing I love the colour grey really!

The only splash of colour comes from the gorgeous emerald green yarn (that appears teal in this picture *sigh*) that is part of my Stripe Study Shawl. As it's part of a knitalong, progress was updated yesterday, but I put it in today's picture so there was at least some colour *laughs*

Gran's scarf has only progressed a tiny bit, and boyfriend's sock appears to have stalled again. Sorry darling ;) I did finish my 2 at a time socks over the weekend though, so they will reappear on Friday.

The most progress (aside from finishing my socks - the fastest socks I think I've ever knit!), has been on my Narragansett. I've done most of the body now, and have started the detail on the hip.


I have about another inch or 2 to go with that before I start the bottom ribbing. I'm really pleased this is coming along so quickly, I can't wait to finish it!

All the progress does come at a cost though... I have no book on the go at all right now.

As ever, if you want more lovely knitting and (actual) reading content, head to Tami's and Ginny's *smiles*

  16. I absolutely love grey. On of the best colors ever. Congrats on getting so much done. Your knitting is beautiful!

  17. Oh my gosh, the hip detail on that Naragansett is just lovely! I could stare at it for a while. (See also: your stripe study shawl, the texture of your scarf-for-Gran.) You're picking some really beautiful projects, but I'm sorry they're eating your reading time! (I am currently really conflicted about whether to start crocheting a salmon or finish reading a book, hah.)

  18. It is so hard to balance both Knitting and Reading. One always slacks while the other gains lots of progress!
    All your WIP's look lovely and seem to coming along nicely! :)

  19. I love that soft grey. It's not a boring shade at all!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love grey too - so versatile and chic :)

    I have a hard time with the knitting:reading ratio - I only have a couple of hours after the kids are in bed so it's one or the other, as I still haven't managed to master doing them simultaneously

    Looking forward to your socks on Friday!

  21. I really dislike grey; but that Narrangansett looks like a lovely silver color :)

  22. I love grey too, so no worries there. Gran's scarf looks pretty - can't wait to see more of it. But it sounds like you're so close on Narangasett that I'd keep pushing along with that!

  23. Yay, a fellow grey obsessive! Can't wait to see more of your Narragansett, as well as the socks on Friday!

  24. Hi! Found your blog through Tami's WIP Wednesdays. I love how your Narangasett is coming along. That's next on my list of things to knit. Can't wait to see how your sweater turns out!

  25. I am slightly envious that you can keep so many knitting projects on the go at the same time. I would never finish anything. Well, maybe something, but not often enough. I like natural undyed grey. Thinking about it, I've not knitted grey jumper for a long time. Doesn't suit me, but maybe someone else.

  26. I have been drawn to gray lately. A good neutral IMO. The shawl is on my list. I am just waiting for the yarn to arrive.
