Evil Eye Candy and Indecision
Aren’t they pretty?
Don’t they look sweet and innocent? Innocent like Brigitte’s Gandalf! Deep within their flowery hearts lurks an insidious evil. I speak of pollen. Actually, I don’t know what these flowers are, and if in fact their pollen causes seasonal allergies, but somebody’s pollen does. I am not the only sufferer. We gather at work in the morning to compare symptoms. Since I don’t wear contacts, my itchy eyes weren’t the worst in lab, but the fact that I had to blow my nose six times before getting out of bed gave me most active nose honors. The lovely breeze today just spread all those plant male gametes around, and with 315 cash crops in California, there is a lot of variety. It will be a couple of days before my new anti-allergy prescription will be effective. Until then, the outside and I do not get along. But you came for knitting content.
And the knitting content leads to indecision today. In my last post I was all set to make a chevron scarf as many of you figured out. I am very busy with science work for the next several weeks, so I want happy, pretty, easy therapy knitting. As I said I was all set, then I perused my sock stash looking for my STR Henpecked to give to Elsie for her birthday (if your birthday is on the Ides of March, you deserve STR), and then indecision struck. So which option do I choose?
Originally, I chose the burgundy with the Woodland (bottom yarn), but then I found the Claudia Hand Paints in Walk in the Woods (upper left), which also looked good with the burgundy. But if that wasn’t enough to consider, I found these:
I am at a complete impasse. Any thoughts?
