Of course, this means I only now have 2 projects for myself on the go (plus a few gift knitting projects) and that just won't do... But this means choosing what to cast on next, and that requires far more brain power than you might expect *laughs* I have a lovely stash of yarn, and a groaning Ravelry queue, but what I can't decide is the type of project I want to knit next.
- I'm excited to use my pure alpaca yarn, which is destined to become some kind of tank top/vest. But my 2 current projects are garments and perhaps I shouldn't start another one until those are done
- I have yarn and the pattern to knit the gorgeous Owls sweater, but again, it's a garment so I'm hesitating
- It's getting cold out now, so maybe fingerless mitts to keep my hands warm?
- Or legwarmers, I want legwarmers and they shouldn't take too long, and will free up some room in the stash faster than the mitts
- Also, I have lots of sock yarn and I love socks and I want many more handknit socks...
- I have yarn to make a scarf for my mum, which she would probably like before it gets completely freezing!
- Maybe casting anything on is a bad plan and I should concentrate on the gift knitting - which would be good as Christmas isn't far off, but bad because then I'd have nothing I can blog about
So, dilemma *laughs*
This means that I am not casting on anything straight away. Which does actually result in me appearing to have superhuman willpower against the knitter's desire to cast on all the things. Plus, I can work on my current projects while I decide, instead of getting wrapped up in the excitement of new project on the needles, hopefully resulting in some extra progress.
But really, I just want to be able to knit all the time and cast on everything I could ever want, and knit so fast that nothing takes longer than a week *laughs*
