I am definitely looking for something new to be a small challenge to me. I want to do a sweater a different way than the three I've made so far. I want to play with a new type of yarn and color for it also. I want something new and wooly for when the weather turns, if it ever turns to summer weather in the first place.
The cycling socks by Nancy Bush should be easier. I know the pattern so that is set. I am having the hardest time choosing and finding the colors. Once I decided on green, I could not find the right greens. It has color work in it for me to practice and I realize I've never been a color coordinated person. I have all these cool colored socks now and I never seem to match my shirts. On the odd day that I do actually match I end up realizing it at noon and being completely surprised.
I am one of those weird people that don't want to use different brands of yarn together. I need to have Louet with Louet, and Cascade with Cascade. I can not fathom why you would mix Louet and Cascade together, they might be slightly different thicknesses, or wear differently. The stress.
So when I find a main color green that I like I can not find a corresponding secondary green from the same maker. I am starting to think maybe I am a little bit odd and other people are not like this. Is yarn just yarn?
Maybe I am just enjoying a dreaming and thinking stage to me knitting that I secretly do not want to give up. OK I will admit a part of me is really enjoying all the possibilities without any of the work.
So I guess what I am saying now is D watch out for some yarn buying. I think an invasion is being planned.
