I'm packing for Rhode Island Wool and Fiber Festival. I should be packing. I had the bright idea that I need to start a new knitting project, so I've taken a slight detour.
I have a pattern in mind and am considering this yarn.
Or this one.
I thought the situation was manageable - pick one color or the other. Things became a bit more complicated when I started thinking about a second pattern.
That's when I pulled this yarn.
I know I'm procrastinating. Packing isn't fun, but at least now I can contemplate these options while I load everything up. After an endless string of gray, foggy, drizzly, damp days there's a good chance the red one will win out. I don't need the sun to brighten my day.
Lilacs are one of my springtime favorites. Their delicate, rich purple is my color inspiration for this week.
And they smell good too.
