She who waits

loses out.

I was thinking of using the Peruvian Highland Wool over at Elann to make the Nicky Epstein Floral Felted Bag from IK Summer 2004. I'm not the only one. I worked out my colors and then promptly went on to feel a bit of guilt over having too many projects. Today I decided that maybe it was something I should buy after all as it's a really good deal. Alas, several of the colors I wanted are sold out. I'm taking this as an omen. I really do have plenty of projects already in the stash as well as enough yarn for several (OK, many) undertermined small projects. I have 4 sweaters not including the half-finished Lara or the Lopi sweater or the other sweater from the Stash of Shame that I haven't talked about yet because it involves 11 color changes. I really don't need another project (whine). And then there is the list of things for The Bean.

Ah well, if I had really wanted to make the bag right now, I would have bought the yarn. As it is, I'll keep waiting and maybe in the future. Besides, I'm thinking of buying the tapestry yarn to make Color on Color from Scarf Style at the big after Christmas sale at my LYS. That's only 42 color changes...
