What do you do when you finish a project? As you know I keep two projects going at a time, one in the house and the other for the car. So this past month I finished my house project, the Summer Cardi, and was a bit delayed in the January sock project. So that became my house project on February 1st annd the February sock became the car project.
That was until I finished the January sock on February 2nd. Now I am working on the February sock full time but with no new house project to start. Dilemma! I need to pick out a new house project. Here are my choices:
Another Summer Cardi out of Caron Simply Paints in either Oceana or Harlequin, as shown.
The Envy Mitts in Claudia Handpaints in Mardi Gras or the Siren Sleeves in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Black Purl - very piratety I think, both yarns were purchased at Loopy Ewe last year.
I also have the option to start the Knit One Below Reversible Vest out of the skein of Interlacements Oregon Worsted in a bright variegate that will go with the Royal Purple leftovers in the Encore from my first Summer Cardi. The only think I have to decide is what size to do it in. I will be checking the gauge on the shop sample I knit to be sure I pick the right size.
And, lastly, the Vine and Leaf Beret from Vogue that I have some wonderful (you guessed it) purple yarn for.
So, those are my choices, and, drum roll please, the decision for this week is: The Siren Sleeves. They are now cast on and about 2 inches into the first one. I think they are going to be lovely for lightweight warmth with a T-shirt this spring.
