I find it hard to make decisions. It takes me forever. I think about all the what ifs I do and what ifs I don't. I vacillate, hum and haw, back and forth, and sometimes, quite often, actually, I miss out on good opportunities. Sometimes I'm impulsive and just jump in, but not often.
The last time I just jumped in was the TTL Mystery Shawl, which worked out in my favor, although past history had more to do with that decision--as did the gradient yarn. The last time I hummed and hawed was when my friends wanted to knit another shawl. We were talking about Germinate, which I did last year and LOVE, but then, as I was spending time looking over possible color selections, Kym mentioned Cactus Flower. The debate I had with myself over which shawl to do went on all afternoon.
After I'd placed my order with Kim, I debated even more over whether I'd made the right choice...on yarn, on color, and shawl pattern. The discussion in my head went on until the yarn arrived (a couple of days later) and then the discussion went on even after I purchased the pattern. I hate to admit it, it might still be going on.
ALTHOUGH, look at this luscious yarn...
The colors are darker than they look in the photo...deeper, richer, warmer. I'm feeling sure about my choice of Cactus Flower, but I have to admit, I looked through Kim's colorways to see which color I'd add if I went with Germinate. A girl has to keep her options open.
On another note, I've had my smart phone just over a week and I haven't spent much time exploring its possibilties. However, I have signed up for an on-line photography class, The Phone Photography Project 2, which was recommended by Mary. I thought about it for a couple of days, but finally, decided the class was the best way to explore and learn smart phone photography. I'll be snapping pictures right and left, learning as much as I can, over the next month.
