Color Choices.

The knitting group I go to on Thursdays (the one that meets at MadTosh Crafts) is going to start a KAL (knit-a-long) this week. The pattern the group is knitting is the Vitamin D cardigan. I knew that casting on yet another sweater would probably not be the best idea, since I already have three on the needles, two of which are for other people. And then there's the whole Holla Knits KAL I'm doing. I didn't want to be left out though, so I'm going to attempt to fit this one in as well.

Now, there's the matter of picking a yarn. I'm going to be using my Gynx Sock base, and after narrowing my selection down to nine colors and thinking on it for a bit (thanks Twitter friends), I have it narrowed down to three colors.

The color I'm most leaning to is my Ino colorway. Is it the most versatile color? No, but I don't have a single purple cardigan or long sleeved shirt.

Another colorway I really keep thinking about is my Wolf colorway. I fell in love with this colorway as soon as I pulled it out of the dyepot, but it hasn't gotten a whole lot of love from others. I adore the very subtle layers of tan and gray. Versatile? Check. Although, I already have several white and off-white long sleeved shirts/cardigans/sweaters, and I don't know if I should add another. This colorway might be better added to my wardrobe in the form of a shawlette.

Last, but certainly not least, we have Catbus. When I posted my top nine choices on Twitter, this colorway was tied with Ino in votes. This one is also versatile, and I don't have any cardigans this color. I do have a sweater, but it isn't one that I wear often.

I really can't decide! I think I'd love all three equally. Do you have any opinions? Please share them in the comments section below.

Coming tomorrow: I'll be introducing my self-striping line to the blog and the shop, so be sure to check in.
