Decision Time

Sometimes it’s nice to just sit with friends.  I always have such great intentions of writing a chatty blog entry.  One that isn’t all about an update.  You know, just a little conversation with my knitting pals.  I have this vision of us all sitting around on my deck at the lake, knitting (or crocheting – now there’s a topic for another post! ), sipping something cold and sharing. So, time to ramble a bit.

Don’t you just love the hours of indecision when one project is finished and you have the delicious dilemma of what to cast on next?  I am mostly a dedicated knitter… almost always keeping to one project at a time (of course that doesn’t mean that I do not indulge in episodes of cast-on-itis pretty regularly) but once I start a project I tend to knit pretty furiously until finished.

The excitement of having just finished a few things means that I am standing on the brink of my next project.  So I’ve been perusing Ravelry, checking my personal stash (or maybe even made a few new things), and have begun to narrow down the list of candidates.

Decisions, decisions.  Will it be Betsey, Mizutama, Freesia or maybe the Tequila Shawl?  I am so loving and intrigued by mixing and blending yarn bases – whether held double or just butting up next to each other in a finished knit. The color and texture opportunities are thrilling.

For instance, right now I’m especially loving the idea of the Tequila Shawl with Bello & Plucky. Perhaps in the new colorway Boots & Faded Jeans held double with Narragansett Gray.

Another set that is particularly lovely together is Webster Groves & Cressey Road.

And then there’s Amy’s Betsey pattern which is just too cute and screams for some fun color combos:

That’s it for now – time to actually make a decision and wind some yarn!
