Grey, grey, grey

While I have plenty to keep me inspired with my quilting, I’ve hit a rut with my knitting. I really want to finish Dad’s Christmas sweater, but I just can’t seem to muster up any enthusiasm for it. Maybe because it’s plain, maybe because so big, maybe because it’s grey…

I decide I needed to cast on something new to recharge my knitting juju.

Somthing silky!

Something lacy!

Something beaded!!!!

And apparently…. something also grey! I don’t know why. This silvery Slinky Cat just spoke to me when I went stash diving.

I’m knitting Crimson Blossom. I knit it a few years ago for a coworker’s wedding, an I enjoyed every minute of it.

I had some dark grey beads that were just perfect, and so far it’s been just the thing to get me excited about knitting again. Except for one small thing.

I realized after getting all this done, that I was using a needle that was smaller than the pattern called for. It was going to turn out much to small if I kept going.

So it’s all been ripped back and I’m starting again. But it’s okay… I’m still feeling the love for it!

    That is going to be beautiful! I can see why you would be excited to work on that project. Wonder if it will be completed before your Dad’s sweater.

    I’ve been working on using up some grey yarn, too. Made a dog first and am now working on a washcloth that will have a grey kitty on it. Looks like you are doing something that will be very pretty!
