I'm trying to be a good monkey....

....I really am. See! I've even been knitting.

See? Good monkey. I've got about 50 rows left and they have been just flying by. However, since casting on the steeks, I've been worried it's not going to fit. It fit before, but I have passed the point where I can try it on to check. Hopefully just paranoia...

Now that I'm getting closer to finishing (and with the possibility of a trip coming) I have been researching my next project and I can't decide. I have three sweater's worth of yarn in my stash. However, the sweater at the top of my list is sadly, not in my stash.

The Choices:
The Tangled Yoke Cardigan, but making it a pullover instead.
The Simple Knitted Bodice, in a 3/4 sleeve. Yea, I know the yarns look the same color, but I couldn't get this one to come out right. It's more of a graphite color.

The Tomato, done long sleeve and possibly without the color band. If I did, I would move it down, under the boobs, more on the waist and probably in a gray or maybe blue (cause I have the blue in stash!). Plus, I love that this is top-down, which I have never done and always wanted to.

And now....the thing that is making me want to be a very bad monkey....

The Plum Frost Cardigan/Pullover....*evil grin*........../insert favorite emote/

What to do....that to me! Leave me a comment and tell me you opinion. And I apologize in advance for any enabling I have done.

A trip? Somewhere fun?

I was worried about the fit of mine too. That's why I ended up buying a wooly board. It really helped me stretch out the floats and get the whole thing lying perfectly. If you want, when it's done if you're still worried, you can send it to me and I'll block it on the wooly board for you.

Oooh, I like the 3/4 sleeve one- that's sassy, pretty straightforward, looks like, and would be good travel knitting. But that's just me.

The plum frost is gorgeous, but would you want to do another colorwork thing right after the project you're doing? (I bet it'll fit awesome. If it fit before, it will fit after.)

Cheers, and thanks for the kind words on my bloggyity-blog. :)
