decisions ~ posted by Melissa

while I patiently wait for some Prairie Shawl photo updates from Morgen, Kimberly and Kelly, here's what I've been up to...

I've narrowed my yarn choices for Niebling Mania , set to start in a month or so, down to 2 finalists:

shall I go soft and subtle:
JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk 2/18 in 'Daffodil'
or shocking and spicy?
Jade Sapphire Lacey Lamb in 'Paprika'
I'll spend the weekend looking at the patterns I bought and try and narrow them down to just one or two and from there try and put the perfect yarn together with the right design.
The planning is half the fun!  Have a great weekend!  ~ Melissa
(and I feel funny throwing up my state fair results so I'll link you back to the items I entered if you're curious to see how I did!  Don't feel obligated to look!  Links are below...)


  1. Hmmm, both lovely choices. I have a favorite but will wait to see which paintset the artist chooses for this particular masterpiece!

  2. your state fair knits are stunning. ALL. your knitting is so so lovely. i love that cone of daffodil, but what ever you choose will be beautiful.

  3. I'm really leaning hard toward the yellow ~ I ordered it just for this project so I'm already partial to it...

    and I'm thinking of the fall light and my poor eyes and I would be kind to myself to pick a light color

    I haven't even thought about needle size yet!

  4. Soft for sure, unless your eyes get tired like mine, but you are 20 years younger, so you could knit on fishing line. LOL

    Hugs... pen
