Winter shades of yay

Gray Seeds

Before I started knitting, I never considered grey one of my favorite colors. Sure, it was a great neutral for skirts and accessories, but it wasn’t necessarily a shade I fawned over.

That all changed when I started buying hand-dyed yarn. I found myself drawn to skeins the color of cold steel and greys verging on lilac. I love how on certain fibers, like silk, and on certain bases, grey seems to come alive. The Urban I knit with Skein’s Top Draw Socks in the Sterling colorway remains one of my favorite FOs.

Of course, there’s no real season for grey, but I tend to think of it as a winter color, with images of snow-covered roads and rocks and branches — or metal skyscrapers — peeking out.

Here’s a selection of some of my favorite skeins and grey projects from Indie Untangled artisans:
