The Deciding Process
I finished my blanket ... NOW WHAT?? OMGawd ... I have the hardest time deciding. When I made Kyoto last year, I mistaken bought WAY TOO MUCH yarn. So I have enough to make another Kyoto, but it would be the same color. What ever am I to do? All of a sudden my stash is overwhelming me ... I also want to make something with my stash Lily 'n Cream... oh and I have some Cotton Ease ... and what about the .... etc etc ... *frantic breathing*

I can't offer anything but empathy. I feel your pain. :( So much yarn, so many ideas. What's next, what's next. . . . . :thinking:

Whenever I'm having "what next" issues, I just start knitting a scarf so that I am knitting SOMETHING.

Cotton ease would make a good end of the summer tank though

:thinking: I'm in the same boat... I was wracking my brains trying to write up a kids shirt pattern, then I was straining them even more trying to make a matching grown-up shirt, and now that I'm done....
I could work on my neverending double knit checkerboard, but just the thought of that makes me want to run screaming ...I'm finishing up my August KAL, but that's just garter st and will be finished soon ... I've got to finish the handle for my knitting bag, but that's another do- while- watching- TV- cuz- it's- brainless project... :zzz:
So I made up my Christmas list!!
Now I have waaaay more than enough projects, but they're going to necessitate a BIG trip to the craft store before I can get started... so what do I do in the meanwhile???
~sigh~
I've been spending more time here, chatting and scouring patterns, than I have knitting...But I'm sure inspiration will strike soon....

Thank you - I can feel the ! But hey, at least you've got yarn already!!


I had an idea - I had no clue what to make my mom for Xmas, but i know she loves looong hot soaks in the tub, so I'm thinking I'll make her a variety of washcloths; a facecloth, hand towel, scrubbie, etc - I can use up the last little bit of plain ol white Sugar n Cream that I have, and put it all in a gift basket w/some salts or something... Plus, you can get pretty crazy w/the stitch patterns, so even tho it's a little project, it won't get boring. Care to join me on this adventure?

PS love your avatar - my sis had a Plecostomus(sp?) that was over 6" long named 'Pleco' - not the coolest name but a crazy-looking ...fish?...

OOOooo... I don't want to use my Lily S'nC 'cause I think I have enough to make a shirt (if I ever find a pattern), BUT I do have some Lion Cotton that could be used up quite nicely We could do a KAL, but I don't have a digi cam ... so it might be kinda boring to do a kal w/ me ...

RE: Pleco:
Yes they are an interesting bunch! My Stimp Man is either a Common or a Leopard. I recently had to put him in a bucket. He is normally dark brown w/ spots; when I put him in the bucket, he turned a pale tan (the color of the carpet beneath the bucket) and had nearly no spots!! It was so kewl to see him play all chemeleon (sp?). I've been trolling Freecycle for a bigger tank for him. The 20 gal is just getting too small for him. :( He swims REAL fast too :rollseyes: "They say" plecos should have a 55 gal or more tank... They are expensive ...

I think the reason my sis's got so big is cuz she had him in one of those outdoor pond things that you make from a kit.
Unfortunately, they had to leave him behind when they moved because they also did not have a big enough tank...
(but when i had him, he was happy in the 30 gal. tank I had)
