I can't decide what to do!

I am having the hardest time deciding what to do. I have so many ideas swirling around looking for my first sweater to knit, deciding on yarns.

I also want to start an entrelac scarf using some Paton's SWS. So do I get a color I would like or do I get color good for my Dad for a gift? I have spent my allowance this month and then some so I don't know when I can justify the yarn for the scarf not to mention the cable bag I want to do.

Speaking of the splurge here's what I treated myself. I got every dpn size I thought I would need in my lifetime at Hobby Lobby. If you have one in your area you might check them out. I got all my needles and notions at 50% off. Woot!

You can't quite see the row counter I got and the lavender thread is from my stash. I plan to use it for the doily.

I got the doily book there as well using the 40% off coupon. I just love deals. I tried working on it a bit last night but wasn't having much luck. I'm going to try again today I think. I have learned a new crochet cast on when knitting in the round that's way cool.

I don't know when I will ever get the to lovely cable designs in Knitting the Classics but I couldn't pass up the deal for it at Half-Price Books. It's worth it just on eye candy alone. The sweaters are over sized but when I do make one I plan on making the small and doing some adjusting to make them more fitted.

I do have some socks to finish up and I want to do my first short row heel. I find the directions for it very confusing! I know to learn it is to do it.

Eeew, I think I want to go shopping with you! You got some deals! It looks like you're all set on dps!

That "Knitting the New Classics" looks like it should be full of great patterns. Hmm, I might have to run get myself a copy. . .

The Short row heels are a breeze once you get used to them. It is just weird turning the work around before you get to the end of the needle.

Those are some wonderful deals you've got there - good for you!

I totally understand where you're coming from being undecided on patterns, yarns and such. I'm right there with you. I keep seeing things and changing my mind - ack!

Good luck! I hope you're able to decide soon ;0)
