I like grey and yellow as a color combo, but I've had a fair bit of it lately. For some reason, I decided that, with my NEWT, 4 out of 5 knitting projects could be shoved into the last month. So I've been working on the Grey NEWT project fairly exclusively these last few weeks.
I did rebel briefly, to dye some stripey yarn
and I may have started spinning this purple Texel
Anyway, I've finished my woven skirt, and discovered that, not only am I a terrible sewer who knows nothing about fabric, but I can't take a picture of myself in a skirt. hehe.
The one that took me the longest, though, was the shawl/scarf called Phi
I haven't worked out the yardage, yet, but it's a lot of garter stitch with fingering weight handspun. It's soft and warm, and the curve and Fibonacci stripes appeal to me. Simple and a bit interesting, which is exactly what I was looking for, and my Slytherin friend Jennifer (KnittingVortex) designed it just in time for it to be in my NEWT :)
And this one, I finished today
Now, I just have to get some legwarmers done, and I'm finished.
NEWT number 4 is already in Planning. It's pretty simple. I'm going to use hand-dyed stripey sock yarn
to make seven pairs of socks at once. Seven Simultaneous Stripey Socks on two very long circular 2.5mm needles. FUN! Or madness. A combination of the two is usually good for a NEWT. hehe.
