I've had some attention deficit regarding my knitting lately. I think it's partly due to finishing a big project. I feel so free to start something new that I just want to keep starting something new. Then there's the whole blog thing. I'm having so much fun with this, but as a fretter, it also gives me something new to fret about. I worry: Do I have enough knitting going on to satisfy anyone who might drop by?
So I'm knitting a few rounds here and a few rows there and there's just not much new to show today. So it might be time for a Stash Picture. Lately I've been thinking about this Noro: I bought it right before our move with a vest in mind. I'm still thinking vest. Maybe something with cables and a deep V neck?? The benefit of being a knitter in Juneau is that one can think about a wool vest in any season.
In other news, Hilary asked where I got the idea to dye grey yarn. I wish I could tell you "I'm just that clever," but I can't take the credit. I found a wonderful Kool-Aid dyeing guide here and realized the colors on the right were much more ME. I also recalled a wonderful class I took with Sally Melville. She's big on overdyeing and showed us inspiring samples, many of which can be seen here. Eunny Jang has a great Kool-Aid dyeing tutorial in which she started with a colored yarn and that also got the gears turning. And finally I went to this book and looked at the color wheels. BINGO. My favorite colors all have grey undertones.
And that's lucky for me 'cause it's grey again in Juneau.
