when blue turns to grey...

...some colour is needed. Tuesday's blue skies have turned to a flat grey-white. Time to bring in the daffodils.


The daffodil fields are brightening up the landscape all around me. It's easy to pick up a bunch for a few pence, and brighten up home as well.


There's some colour too on the knitting front - a simple long and skinny scarf for my sister in a 2x2 rib, using Dream in Colour's Classy from Stash (purchased last autumn on a day out with Kristina. And sister was meant to be doing the knitting, not me).


I'm a bit bored with this, backward and forwards, same old thing. At least the yarn is inspiring - a beautiful blend of sea greens.

I really want to get back to the socks.

i am really drawn to turquoise/blue greens at the moment... such uplifting colours aren't they?

It looks like a lovely scarf. How long does it have to be? Is it just a bit of mindless knitting? The color is great.

Have a good weekend.

Ciao...

Yes, I seem to remember G was to be doing the knitting!

But perhaps this would be a good project for taking to knitting group, as you could chat without worrying about going off pattern? The color blend is lovely.

I like the yellow against the grey-white. I have been buying daffodils so much this year. I think I really need the injection of yellow to liven me up!

The daffs are gorgeous, and I love the shade of the scarf. Sometimes mindless knitting is great for when you are watching a thriller on TV....or as Kristina says the knitting group.
You'll be on to the socks in no time the rate you are going!

I love your daffodil pictures and the colour of the yarn is perfect. You might almost persuade me I should try to knit again, not an area of great success so far in my life!

socks wow you're brave and clever I leave the knitting and crochet to my my ( yes I am 34) but she's a dab hand at it unlike me:D

What a lovey sea blue-green that yarn is - I hope that it is snuggly soft too.

The blends of blue and green in the wool are just lovely. A fabulous scarf, will you knit matching gloves? I love to bring daffodils indoors. x
