In a Quandry

I can get quite paralysed by indecision. So paralysed that I procrastinate myself into missing the boat entirely. I’m on the cusp of this again.

But first a bit of background…
At the end of May we have two major family events: brother’s wedding and then – two days later – my daughter’s First Holy Communion. Having two family event separated by two days means two completely new outfits for me. And you know how much I love shopping for clothes for me. Bleughch!

As part of my stash-down knitting-plan for the year, I identified Peaseblossom Tunic by Kirstin Omdahl…

…as a good pattern to use my Fyberspates Lace.

I thought this could be a starting point for one of these out-fits. This puts me on a dead-line to try and have it complete by early May so that I still have shopping-time to buy the outfit to go with it.
Ingenious plan, no? Eh… no. Highly risky plan that may well back-fire. Grab your time-machine and return in a month’s time to witness the debacle.

The thing is… ideally, I should also be advancing the Petals Wrap as the basis for a second (as yet also un-purchased) outfit.

My dilemma? Keep going on Petals or get Peaseblossom up and running?

Until I figure this out I’m quite likely to do neither. By which time the procrastination will determine the outcome. Go me!

    Do you want to bring the yarn tonight along with the pattern and we can have a look at it? I’ve seen what you’re doing with the wrap cardigan.

    Definitely finish the petals wrap. At least make yourself do a little every day. My still swollen hand is a testament to how unpleasant crocheting rapidly to meet a lastminute deadline is 🙂

      You make a very wise point. It would be better to have at least one thing done than to have two things half done. I’m not a fan of pressurised-crafting either.

        I think you said it all! Try finish one of them for the big day and if by some flight of chance you get both done, well it´s a bonus!
