I’m closing in on completing Fern — I’m on the last sleeve. Yahoo! I’m looking forward to wearing this sweater, if the weather will cooperate.
But that brings me to a dilemma. What to knit next?
Sometimes this is not an issue. I know exactly what’s next in the line-up. But this time I’ve got too many choices. Eeeeek!
There is Alouette from Rowan Vintage Style.
I’ve got the yarn to knit this (Rowan 4-ply Soft) in the colors called for in the pattern.
I’ve also got Rowan 4-ply soft in Expresso (a nice chocolate brown) that I bought to knit Fleur, but think I want to use it for Agnes instead.
I’ve got Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk in a lovely golden tan that I bought to make Freida, but think I’ m going to use it to make Magnolia from Rowan Vintage Style instead.
And then there’s the Kureyon.
I’ve got Kureyon in color #128 to make “Butterfly” from the Jane Ellison Noro Book.
And I’ve got Kureyon in color #147 to make “Lindebo” from the Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton Book Two.
And I can’t decide which I wanna make.
So help me decide. Vote on your favorite!
Kitty Bed Update
I’ve started knitting my kitty bed. It’s looking . . . uh . . . interesting.
To Stash Or Not To Stash
That is the question.
The question I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. In 2004 I’ve been on a kick to get rid of stuff. Half of my cowboy boots and at least two-thirds of my clothes went to the Salvation Army last spring. I have too much stuff. I have too much stuff. I have too much stuff. This is what happens when you live in the same place for more than ten years and are lazy.
I have too much stash. I’ve got some stuff that, to be honest, I have no idea what it is, except that it’s wool of some sort. I’ve got bags of yarn that I bought with no fixed idea of what to make. I’m considering getting rid of everything that is not earmarked for a specific project. Or close to everything.
I made a good start last week. I sent out a bunch of feltable wool to kitty bed knitters. But I think I’m going to start going through the rest of the stash and putting stuff up for sale, either on eBay or privately.
What will I do with the money I make? Buy more yarn, of course.
No one ever accused me of being logical.
