Colour-wise it is interesting that to survive the last rounds of the big red granny, I have been breaking things up by knitting some bright green socks. For those in the know about such things, red and green are on the same cone in the eye (which is why you can be red/green colour blind) and subconsciously I have followed this in my desire to distance myself from the sea of red.
However, the big red granny is now (finally) done – just in time for high summer! But it is nice to know that it will be ready and waiting for me come September, or perhaps earlier judging by last summer
I have also now finished my green on-the-go socks (basic no cuff, rib leg and plain foot). Another outing from the ever lovely JitterBug, bought this time from the “Norfolk yarn shop“ in Norwich. This is a relatively new (but thoroughly lovely) yarn shop in the centre of the town (in one of the side streets) and handily located near a very nice coffee shop. It was a struggle to only buy two skeins but I was strong and (technically) as I cast on straight away only one skein went to stash so really it only counts as one…… honest!
So, two projects done and now to stick to my plan of clearing up my WIP box for summer. Or at least my more honest plan of getting to the point that I can actually close my WIP box! I am still feeling the heat, so I think I will crack on with some floaty shawls, only three on the go to choose from….
