Because I Must
I was making good progress on another top down sweater, after a conflict about the color I had chosen. I was thinking it was too camo looking. After my vow to dress more girly. There was a very obvious change in color when I started a new hank of yarn, which I later resolved by ripping back and starting an alternate ball of yarn. I was thinking it was the nature of the beast with using a hand painted yarn, but the change was too obvious even for me. I finished the body, and the ribbing is curling like hell, so much that no amount of blocking will fix it. So, it's sort of tossed aside until I figure how to resolve the problem (which will likely be changing the original design to have a different ribbing), in favor of a more satisfying project.
Speaking of satisfying--I purchased quite a bit of yarn this past weekend at two different events. For sweaters that I had no idea that I would be making. The frustrating thing is, I want to make everything right now. If only I could knit faster, and didn't have to leave the apartment to work.
