I am wallering in indecision like a pig in the mud. Other than all the stuff I have started, I don’t have anything to knit. Soleil is finished and blocking, the Ribby Shell is almost finished so that doesn't count because I really am going to finish it this week, and little things like hats, socks, and baby items don’t count either because they are on-going. So what do I do now? Fair Isle? Lace? Cables? Or something simple to show off the yarn? Sweater? Shawl? For whom? I could always work on something I’ve already started… naaaa.
The last picture is my collection of projects that just might possibly get finished one day. Maybe. I sorted and labled and organized- wools together, cottons in another box, a couple with baby yarns, sock yarns, etc. The see-through boxes are nice, and I labled the rest. Go Sharpies. Then I remembered the down stairs closets and pulled out more. I also came up with a box of projects that just didn't make the cut and need to be recycled, and a pile of yarn to sell on Ebay or give away. I was so proud. All the organized yarn was put back in the closet; the rest sat on the floor a little too long. I started thinking about it.
A skein of bulky red became mittens, and the boucle that I hate knitting with and am not quite sure why I bought to begin with became a neck warmer, a poncho and a hat. Then I started looking at the big trash bag of leftover yarn balls. I really needed slippers. Really.
Now that I know what's in my stash, I have to decide what to do with it. Time to go through all the pattern books, magazines, and notebooks of internet patterns. This could take a while.
