I'm at a spot in my knitting where I'm thinking of my next project and I've been traveling a merry-go-round of indecision. It goes like this:
- I'd like to knit some red lace
- But I was planning on doing some small projects next
- But all the yarn for small projects is dark colors or blue and I want something bright
- Well there's colorful sock yarn
- But I don't want to knit with small needles and besides I have two socks on the go
- Okay so knit some red lace
- But that would be a big project and I want to do a small project
I've completed the finishing work on the Alice Starmore Oregon Vest and you know, there was a lot of finishing to be done to that vest. It's lovely I'm sure, but all I see right now are all the tiny little mistakes I've made.
I was told by many people that the Alice Starmore kits are often short of yarn, but I had no problems. I'm thinking that this looks like a wonderful store of yarn for mittens and tams. Or it looks like Easter Eggs.
Wouldn't that be fun? An egg hunt where it was balls of yarn hidden about instead? Can you image all the knitters lined up with their Lantern Moon baskets scouring the bushes for balls and skeins of yarn? Oh yes! Sign me up! Wait, I just thought of the scuffle that could occur when two knitters found a skein of cashmere at the same time. And do you think that we would poach each other's baskets like the kids do on AFV?
Warning: Abrupt change of topic.
This is how far one ball of Sheepjes goes when knitting Clessidra.
It seems like I'm only going to need three balls of yarn to finish these up. I've actually completed one of these socks. That's what I've been working on this past week and I'm throughly tired of this shade of blue since it was also predominate in the Oregon Vest. My hands are also getting tired of sock needles.
Oh look. I've circled back to the beginning of the loop. What am I going to knit? Red lace, red lace. Ecalder. Nope, it doesn't work the way red rum does. Red hat? Tahder. Red sock? Kcosder? That's worse.
Time to wrap this post up. I think that's enough of a peek into my crazy head for one night. I seems I've got to knit some red lace. Only.... What pattern?
Help! I going to spiral off into another loop. And do you know how I know? It's because I've been through the pattern books, and I can't find the right shawl to knit. I think that's why I haven't knit red lace yet. Oh bother.
