Literally, not figuratively speaking. For some reason all my wips at the moment are blue. And I've always quite disliked blue. Or not disliked, but preferred other colours more.
I have a sister who is a year and a half older than me. She liked blue and that was the main colour of her garderobe. As the younger sister I got her clothes when she outgrew them, and every time I was wearing something blue I knew it was passed down to me and not something I had wanted. If I got to choose clothes they were red, pink or green; anything but blue. My school uniform (when we were living abroad; there are no school uniforms in Finland) was also blue: a pale blue shirt and a navy skirt. I remember hating it. Even in my adult years I've only had a couple of blue clothes. Blue jeans are OK, but other than that, I only have two blue sweaters, a navy cardigan and a t-shirt, and one bright blue t-shirt, which I love because there is a Star Wars print on it. So I was quite surprised to notice what I have on my needles at the moment.
The lace scarf is starting to get done. I have finished and blocked the first half, and am about halfway done with the second one. (I'm then going to graft the pieces together.) It actually looks really pretty now that I've blocked the first piece; I'm really pleased.
I've also been knitting a navy blue sweater with some cables on the front. The body is almost finished, and I've already knitted most of the first sleeve. It's been really hot for the past few days and holding the sweater body on my lap has been way too sweaty, so I set it aside for a while and started to make the sleeves. It doesn't matter in which order you knit the pieces as they should all be done anyway, right? :)
The latest addition to my wips was the mittens I started today. Not much to show yet, but the yarn is pretty.
