It’s not often I choose to work with grey. It’s not colourful enough for me.  I love to play with colour whilst knitting or crocheting, matching various shades and hues.

…but there is one reason I work with grey – my husband.

I rarely get chance to make things for him. It’s usually cute little (colourful) cardigans for my daughters that find their way onto my needless/hook, but once in a while I will make something for him.

I started a pair of wooly sock for Mr PurplePurl for Valentines day. Being cocky, I started 4 days before! Ha! The first sock knitted up quickly and I got that finished for the special day! 🙂



Ta Da!

The trouble with socks is that my husband needs a pair, rather than just one. So I cast on another sock…


and this is where I am today! Knitting a grey sock whilst it’s grey outside!







Local Workshops

I’ve been getting myself immersed into Twitter for the Hubby’s company, but whilst on there I usually find something of interest to me personally. Tonight, during Yorkshire Hour, I found Christine Harvey who holds local knitting and crochet workshops. I was drawn in by the ‘Sock it To Me’ Sock Knitting Workshop. I have always wanted to try knitting socks. I have also found another blog to follow! I love Twitter!
