I am in a ‘Spoiled for Choice’ crisis. My Sockpal has given me a free hand (never a bright idea) regarding fibre, colour, pattern. The only brakes she has put on me is ‘no purple’, so this is probably out:
(Do you love that name as much as I do?)
But, as The Knitting Ninja also creates these:
that doesn’t really help me. Also, I am loving just about everything from Opal.
And then, I thought I should look for a pattern. Maybe if I found a pattern that I really loved, it would make up my mind for me about the yarn. I can’t just knit plain vanilla knitting, my brain would liquefy from sheer boredom and dribble out my ears. And then I’d have to clean up the mess.
So now I’m madly in love with five or six different patterns.
I totally adore everything from Cookie A, especially Thelonious (I intend to knit Milicent for myself one of these days). I’m also deeply enamoured of Foggy Dawn from Suzi’s Knits. Both of these patterns need a solid yarn to show them off to best advantage. But then Suzi also has several designs that would be really nice in a handpainted yarn. The Spring Garden would be paticularly nice in Tulips.
So I am appealing for your help. I can’t decide, and I need you all to make up my mind for me.
Here are the finalists for pattern. Once that is decided, maybe I can decide on yarn for myself (riiiiiiiiiight). Click on the thumbnail for a better look, and then please help me by clicking the link below to vote.
