Guys– I don’t know what to knit. Yeah. I said it. This is such a rare state for me, I hardly even know myself! All through the end of Malabrigo March I was dreaming of everything I wanted to make that was non-Malabrigo-related and now I don’t know where to start. Here are my two (ONLY TWO, who am I?!) active WIPs… both still using Malabrigo.
Scarf of Spring:
|Malabrigo Yarn Dos, colorway Lettuce|
I love this scarf but it is a bittersweet love because I will not have enough yardage to continue/finish it at any decent length. As pictured, that’s about 10 grams of yarn knit up into a 5.5″ piece… and I only have 35 grams left. That means my little scarf will be only about 24″ long before blocking, which no matter how you slice it is not much of a scarf. I’ve put out a desperate “in search of” on the Malabrigo board but I’m not holding my breath. If I don’t hear anything soon I’ll have to frog this and start anew. I like the stitch pattern a lot, though, so I’m hoping to incorporate it elsewhere.
|Malabrigo Rios, colorway Archangel|
I have been seeing a physical therapist for the last couple of months for some hip/pelvic pain I’ve been having and she is amazing and fantastic and definitely deserving of some knitwear. She is so good at her job and her hands work so incredibly hard that I thought a bright and cheery pair of fingerless mitts would do the trick. I’m improvising as I go and that fun swirly stitch is a smaller version of the Estonian shell stitch that is featured in my Syrinx Shells cowl pattern.
So now, what to knit for myself? I’m debating so many different things, there are at least 2 different socks, 3 different shawls, a couple of scarves, a few designs, and TWENTY-EIGHT hibernating WIPs (oy!) all vying for attention, wanting to be knit next.
The knitter’s quandary. It’s a rough one. What do you do in these situations?
