is that there are just too many options - too many yarns, too many patterns, to many links to places to buy. It does my head in. I read somewhere that humans get confused and unable to make a choice if presented with more than X number of options. I can't remember what X was, but I'm pretty sure the choices on Ravelry > X (oh, yeah! Maths!)
This explains why you get overwhelmed when looking at 48 brands of olive oil in the supermarket, by the way.
Anyway, my dilemma is that I'm in terrible danger of developing a stash. Normally I buy yarn for one project as I near the end of another, and it is for a specific project I have in mind. But right now I want to buy yarn for Rogue, and the tangled yoke cardigan, and maybe an as-yet-undecided Ysolda pattern too... But I'm all confused as to how and when I will make these things. And when I tell myself to just pick one, well, I can't.
I like the idea of knitting something pretty and neat like the tangled yoke cardie, but then I'd probably get more wear out of Rogue, even thought I like to imagine I always dress prettily. But then, is it worth making Rogue in a handwash only yarn? It seems like the kind of jumper I'd want to be able to throw in the machine, so maybe should make the cardigan. And although I wear a lot of hoodies now, will I wear so many next year when I have to wear a suit five days a week? So maybe it should be the cardigan... but then that's still handwash... and so it goes in circles...
