It feels like I have been spending a tremendous amount of time contemplating my projects lately. It seems I have hit the "...but do I love it?" phase too many times this March. For starters, I have my Damson shawl, made with Madelinetosh Sport. This yarn is sought after, and I love it. As the yarn price approaches (close your eyes Phillip!) $50 for two skeins, I can't help but wonder if the yarn is better suited to another project (say a Mara shawl?). It has hit the bottom of the bag as I mull it all over but sadly, I think it is inches from the frogging pile. (That is not to say that I don't enjoy the pattern by Ysolda. In fact, it is one of my favorite patterns, as it has a line by line stitch count which I found insanely helpful.)
My Rosebud hat has also gone absolutely nowhere, as I decide whether I really want another navy colored hat. I am still very much in love with my 16 Cable Hat (see post a while back) and am wondering whether the Malabrigo in Marine is really going to be worth the effort. I have recently decided to make a Kathleen hat (by Jane Richmond) and my mind is racing---is there really a such thing as too many hats? To a (traditionally) non-hat wearing gal, the answer is yes. :(
All is not riddled with doubt though, on my needles is a Boneyard Shawl in Quince & Co Chickadee. I am in serious love with the Chantrelle colorway and am having no anxiety about this one. I think it will be a go to piece for this upcoming fall and winter.
I guess the moral of March is that I have lots of work to do.
