Indecisive ... vacillating ... not sure which. giggle

I was going to knit the Mondo Cable Cardi. I was certain I wanted a cardigan, and I wanted something fairly sturdy because I wanted to wear it outdoors in the spring and fall, doing yard stuff or running to the store - nicer than a sweatshirt (which is my usual garb) but not a jacket. I was going to use this yarn to make it. That was after I decided to use this yarn (discontinued). Then I was going to use this yarn.

I was swatching with many yarns because I am going to lead a KAl at my LYS. People could choose to knit that sweater in the cardigan or the pullover version or a vest. As a result of all that swatching, I am now going to knit the pullover instead, with Angel Kiss yarn. This time I am really sure. I fell for this yarn and it's much more suitable for a near the skin garment that will not be subjected to as much wear and tear - that's why I switched to the pullover version. I have not yet chosen a color, though I prefer the "tones" over the solid colors but I am excited. This is going to be a soft, cuddly sweater that can be worn alone or layered. I'll be doing a gauge swatch tonight at the "needle exchange" at my LYS. It will take a week or so to get the yarn in once I settle on a color. It will be a very long week. I'll try to finish the sleeves on the He Gansey while I wait. I hope to get photos over the weekend. Only the neck treatment will remain ... another finished object is looming!

We are expecting anything from a rainy AM commute (the weather channel) to a wintry mix beginning this evening and continuing overnight (a local channel) over the next 24 hours depending on who you listen to. I think I will prepare to work from home tomorrow just in case. I wish I could stay in, knit and listen to audio books all day. Well, it is Friday tomorrow, so that means that the weekend is not far ......

Cardigan or pullover, I'm sure it will be lovely. But yes, if you're doing it in a next-to-the-skin-soft yarn, the pullover is definitely the way to go.

I'm like that, too. It takes me awhile to decide on the project, and even after I finish, there are times, when I will rip it out again!
