I am nearly done with my Margaret Dashwood Shawl. It is going to be delicious. But now I am planning my next project and I am stuck between two:
1: I was firmly determined to make Meritance for me from Knit Picks Gloss Fingering in Hawk. Its just my cardigan. I wear this style ALL THE TIME but I have never tried to knit an every-day-wear for myself. All my knits are special wear or specific outfit knits. For the every day stuff I always go buy cheap cardigans from Target wear them out and throw/donate them when they get too far gone for me. But…
2: I went to Chico and there I found the perfect yarn for a Heliopath Vest which I want to make for a gift. The yarn store (Heartstrings) was delicious! One of the best stocked that I’ve seen since moving to CA and it was really really hard to decide not to buy random stash yarn! There was Sweet Georgia which I’ve never come across before but was so temptingly yummy. Sadly it was faaaaaarrrrrrrrr outside my price range! Instead I got Borrocco Vintage in Caramel: it is mostly acrylic which I usually avoid… squeaky yarn… SHUDDER. It feels very nice though- not squeaky- and it is for a younger girl and summer wear so washing frequently will be an issue.
So now I’m stuck in that delicious dilemma. I have patterns, needles and yarn for both… which to cast on… hmmm.
I am reading very little at the moment that isn’t quick and done in less than 5 minutes. I’ve been busy and traveling but I have still got Sylvia’s Farm on the back burner and a library copy of Folks This Ain’t Normal in my waiting list. I’m linking up with Ginny today.
