Decisions, decisions

I don't know what to do. I bought two skeins of this lovely green Merino silk blend yarn at Woolworks and cast on for Instant Glamor. I wasn't sure how I felt about it and I had an entire untouched skein so I started the Sweet Honey Beret from the Winter 08 IK. The only problem is that it really didn't have as much slouch as I had hoped with the one skein. Now I have two hats in need of a bind off but in order to improve the Honey Beret I'd need to take apart the other hat. I'm not sure if a good wet blocking will help either hat.

Sigh, I think these are going to sit for another few days until I can make a decision. I think tonight I'll work on my socks. For some reason Ive had a real urge to knit socks lately and I've decided to embrace that. These are Fruit Loops in some Madelinetosh sock in the Lichen colorway, really beautiful stuff so far. I'm knitting these toe-up and two at once becuase that's how I roll. I have an unreasonable fear of running out of yarn and doing both at the same time avoids getting bored with the second sock. I'm not sure this is the best pattern for this colorway but it's fun and easy enough to do while watching TV.

Closing the loops amuses me, as does my "snowman" A skein of Malabrigo broke while I was winding it the other day. After I stacked the skeins I had to finish him off. I'm silly, I know.

I like the hat, but that's just me... And the socks look perfect!
