Saturday Stash

I've been going round in circles this week. 

That's how it feels when you work anything larger than a sock in the round.  Now that I'm over the ever-increasing shoulder and sleeve knitting, I've settled down to just plodding round and round.  Each round does have a nice lace inset, though, and it's just tricky enough to keep me awake.  But it's actually a pretty easy lace pattern with only 3 rows.  Love the color, don't you?

And, from my fabric stash I've pulled these fabric lengths.  I've been whittering on about patterns for the past week.  This is why.  I have  re-discovered these and I! But which one first?  I'm leaning toward the blue flowers on white.  But that red is pretty dramatic.  Then, again, daisies are so fresh and retro at the same time.  See the problem?

In the meantime, it's a holiday weekend here.  There are grandkids to play with and the sun is still shining!

Yes, I do like that blue. I'm deeply envious of the bit of lace you get to do. I'm still 40 rows away from being able to add some stripes to my garter stitch project. The going is slow. At this pace, I should get to the lace in about a month.

I like the daisy fabric best, but that may be because I'm partial to daisies.

I think the fabric on the right first. Not because I like it better than the others, but summer is coming and it is the most summery!

Well, red is my favorite color. So, I'm voting for RED FIRST! LOL

I vote red! It's the most striking, and it will make up beautifully.
your blue cardi(?) looks gorgeous! I don't like knitting in the round because it means I can't put the needle under my arm, but then again, i don't really like sewing up...
