I just found out yesterday evening that I won Coveted Yarn's Newborn Hat Contest with the 50 hats I made for my Charity Hats Project! That means I now have a $50 gift certificate for yarn from their online store. Yip-eeee! Well, sort of. Now, I have to decide which yarn to BUY with that gift certificate, which is proving to be a huge challenge. Sigh. My immediate thought was, Yeah! I can make the cardi I've been wanting! After just a few minutes of browsing Coveted Yarn's shop, though, I realized how unlikely that was. They have very, very, nice, pricey yarn. So I'll probably end up with a scarf, or maybe a laceweight shawl. One one hand, I know I'd wear a scarf. On the other hand, I'd love to make a luxurious silk shawl with a pattern that would show off my stitching abilities. But I'm a little scared that I'd finish it and it'd be gorgeous and I wouldn't ever wear it. So. I could always get yarn for a nice cashmere scarf and some Tofutsies for a fun pair of socks, and leave it at that. I just don't know. ARGGGH!
