On another good note, I leave for Hawaii on Sunday for my good friends' wedding! I really can't wait. I'm counting down the minutes. Maybe I can get Gemini finished by the time I take off. I really don't want to lug a sweater to the islands. Not only is my space limited, but I already look like a weirdo knitting at the beach with something small nonetheless a full size sweater. So, this post of knitterly finds is going to be dedicated to what projects I should bring and CO while I'm in Maui! I'm thinking a shawl project for sure and I already know which one...
Sonetto Shawl by Judy Marples. I've had this in my queue since it came out.
I was debating between the previous one and this one from Judy.
I wanna bring two projects along, because who knows how much time I'll have to knit, but I'm always quite optimistic and rather have more yarn and needles than not enough. I'm deciding between two shawl projects or a shawl and a sock project. I'm leaning more towards the shawl & sock combo, so here's what I'm choosing from for the sock pattern: love these, these are just as lovely, maybe these are too simple, these are at the top of the list, but really so are these, and another simple pair. I somehow managed (without trying) to find all my favorite FREE sock patterns, which unfortunately makes this process even more difficult because I can't say, "Oh well, that pattern's free, let's go with that!"
If I can't make up my mind on which sock pattern to bring along, then there's always shawls to dwell over: did you see this new shawl pattern on Knitty, have I already mentioned that I really want to knit this one, loving this new Stephen one, I have the book with this shawl, there's something really cool about this one, and I really wanna knit this one.
Help me out folks! I can't decide on my own. Hugs & stitches!
