What Next?

Issue: Can't decide what I want to knit now.

Solution: Cast on something new every day.

Fargyle Socks (for me). Diploma Gold DK in the same colour as the socks I made M6.
Socks make good knitting in hot weather. I'm still not brave enough to cast on with my sock yarn but taking the first step by knitting some socks for me in double knit.
Fargyle in Lupin

Clapotis (for me). Vintage Hues (bulky wool and big needles and hoping for something big to snuggle under for winter). One for the cooler days. This colour way is quite pretty - maroon and gray with a little bit of yellow.

Pink dishcloth (for me). Made from pink cotton leftovers.
Mindless knitting for in front of the TV or when the heat is melting my brain
Scraps in pink cotton

I may even cast on something new tomorrow!

Ooh the pink is so pretty... and the purple socks look great too

Nothing wrong with having a whole bunch of projects on the go, I say!! But then, with about 14 wips, I would say that!! Look forward to seeing how your clappy knits up in the vintage hues, and you can do socks on 4ply yarn, I know you can!

Wonderful are so creative - very inspiring! xx

There's nothing wrong with casting on until something grabs you. Remember, you just finished a great project!

Denise said...

Ooh, I hope you can keep up with all those new projects. Love the sound of a chunky Clapotis, I have never made one at all but still keep wanting to.

I think that's an excellent solution to indecision!

Am doing a lot of dishcloths myself lately as a way to cope with the heat. It just feels right.

Im with RR - lots of wips is good! Gives you choice. Cant wait to see the chunky clappy, I love that colourway.

I agree with what others have said about casting on loads of stuff. Sometimes it's hard to know what will grab us until we're actually doing it!
