All about the green

Yes, it's my current colour of obsession from the green, blue and chocolate of my Lady of the Lake jacket to the green KSH waiting for me in the knitting bag. So what's in the middle?

Having finished (sort-of) stage one of the Christmas knitting I have cast on a little something for myself. In green.

As Rolf Harris would say: "can you tell what it is yet?"

Guesses in the comments (or peek on Ravelry), all I will say is that it is now a little longer than in the picture (where it somewhat resembles an Elizabethan ruff)

And I get to use my prettiest stitch markers like these:

And this little one.

The yarn is Rowan Felted Tweed in Herb and it's a perfect grass green with little flecks of white and blue - totally captivating!

I have also finished a sock:

last seen precariously perched over my toe and now just waiting for a mate - I would have cast on again on the train last week but I started re-reading the Friday Night Knitting Club and couldn't put it down - my passion for reading creeping into the knitting time - surely that can't be allowed. Well that and I was ooogling the latest Martha Stewart Living and developing all sorts of grand designs to make my house just so before I came home and realised that I live with a heap of books, a lot of yarn, paint, canvases and brushes in unusual places (H's stash) and an insane amount of sports equipment - Martha- style living will just have to wait.

Now I'm going to be virtuous and head to the gym in the hope that this will appease the internet gremlins. They appear to be feeling more helpful this morning but only time will tell!


  1. I am a bad girl so I peeked. It's going to hit the pressie knitting though isn't it?

  2. Pressies are all but done so I think we'll be OK - plus it makes great cover for the remaining pressies for H to hide behind when he comes in unexpectedly

  3. Ah yes, green... the color of the holly and the ivy and the secret project not yet full grown... Of all the projects in the woods I hear this one bears the crown.

    Whoops! There's those yarn fumes again...
