I’ve been working on the Cave Troll’s socks, and the colors are bright and they’re totally kicking me out of the funk (as is the spring rain:-)but I’m having trouble figuring out what to do about the baby blanket.
I usually do not hate intarsia this badly.
But then, I haven’t really done a lot of intarsia since before Kewyn was born. I’m starting to believe those two moments are not coincidental. I can’t work on this blanket unless everybody is happy, everything around my work space is clean, and everybody is off my lap.
Realistically, how often is that going to happen?
But I LOOOOVVVVEEE these colors…and who else is going to have a baby anytime soon? This is the last one in a while (of course, that being said, everybody and their brother’s best friend’s sister is going to get knocked up!) What am I going to do with this?
I just hate TOADs… I truly truly hate abandoning projects…I’ve got less than a handful of them in my entire 9 year fiber history…adding one to my list is sort of depressing…
So what do you think? Is there shame in admitting defeat? Should I pull out the cool self-striping acrylic and the size 8ts, whip up a feather/fan cable and preen, or should I keep up w/the cotton intarsia on the size 6’s? I can’t promise I’ll count votes, but I am curious–at what stage do you abandon a perfectly good project?
