Maintaining neutrality

ImageThis is my Nuvem thus far. I’m on the fourth color in about a week and a half of sole focus. That’s 708 yards down. This next color contrast is not as stark, but I think it will balance well in blending to brown tones.

One of my trusted advisors likes to say, “The world is ruthlessly neutral.”  I like to sit and think about that phrase sometimes. I don’t know if it’s true, but it’s interesting to think about.

Neutrality can also be soft and very beautiful, especially when you knit it with and alpaca and bamboo blend.

  1. I am currently working on the ruffle to Nuvem. I keep nodding off with tedium. I need to find something gripping to watch so I can finish those last few rounds. I NEED it off my needles. I think your colour changing version is much more interesting than my sea of sage green.

    • Ohhhh…the ruffle. I know that’s going to be hard when I get there. I don’t even want to count my stitches because I think the number will overwhelm me, already.

    • Thank you so much. The soft yarn and the changing colors are keeping me going. I don’t know if I would be quite as motivated if it were a solid color.

    • This is a soft and gorgeous yarn to work with. I can’t wait to wrap it around myself. I wish there was a better way to get to do that or see how large this is w/o taking it off the needles!

    • Haha, that’s the only thing I really don’t like about big stuff like shawls. You have to wait for the final reveal! (I might not be super patient)
