Okay now what?

I have post pictures far and wide of my sankaku shawl, I am ridiculously proud of it…

I finished about 29 days before my deadline which simply amazes me. I think that  knitting during Olympics definitely helped. I was able to just focus on the stitch, I mean its not as if its colorwork and I had to keep looking down at a chart, I just need to memorize the pattern and listen to an audiobook or watch something on TV.

I also realized that the biggest knitting projects that I have done are both pink wraps. I wouldn’t describe myself as a big lover of pink, so I was really surprised when I noticed this. I think I might swear of pink wraps for the next year.

So after finishing Sanaku I had the following options:

 

Door number 1: Finish colorwork mittens ( need separate some yarn I have held together on a ball.. ughh)

Door number 2: Crochet some squares for a condolence blanket I committed to helping support

Door number 3: Continue the 4 ounces of Nest Fiber I started last month.

Door number 4: Cast on something new.

Okay.. so I guess I lied.. I have already knit up a quick hat ( we both know I need to stash bust in a bad way)

So I am doing a mix of doors, 2,3,and 4 because I could’t decide.. I do have a confession I am  trying to do a project in 2 color brioche and it is not going well… The learning part… well and the knitting part too.  I think I just need to do a deeper dive of the Craftsy  class I’ve been watching and the Youtube videos online.

 

One thought on “Okay now what?

  1. I love your decision making process, can’t wait to see what door you pick. I love love your hat. As soon as I finish this baby blanket I am going to make one to use up some little bits I have just sitting.
