My eyes are on my work. I am watching each stitch form, one at a time, but my brain is flitting around like a butterfly, landing on idea after idea about what I will do next. Some people call that lack of focus, lack of commitment.
I call it fun. Crazy, but fun.
I'm nearing the end of knitting a Krista Tee (meaning that it'll probably be done late next week), and I am starting to get excited about what I will work on next. My criteria for the next project are:
- I want a quick project
- I don't want to worry too much about gauge.
What kind of silly question is that to ask?
I had a look through some of my bookmarked favourites in Ravelry and narrowed it down to a few ideas. Here are the contenders:
Mizzle - using pink/melon/cantaloupe-coloured Pico Accuardi
198 yards of heaven - using Blue Ridge Yarns Cotton Candy in Evening Jewel
Semele - using Twist, Yarns of Intrigue Sock Yarn
It's a tough choice, and while it's not really going to be a life-changing decision, it's not going to be easy to choose one of these lovely projects and which of these beautiful skeins of yarn to play with next.
I thought I'd try spin the bottle, but I ended up drinking the beer instead.
I thought I'd get Rascal to choose, but he was emphatically uninterested.
I'm so eager to get started... I only wish I could knit more quickly so that I could enjoy each of these as soon as possible! I love that each of these yarns are handdyed treasures, and no matter which I choose first, each one is going to bring me great pleasure as I feel it slipping through my fingers.
In the spirit of democracy, I think I'll likely go for whichever yarn I end up picking up most this weekend. The only problem with THAT is that I can easily fit all three skeins in my hand at once!
If you feel like helping me out with this dilemma, feel free to comment and leave your opinion about which one you'd choose. The only fear I have with that is that someone will suggest an entirely new idea for me to mull over.
Oh, indecision... thy name is Adriene...
