|The problem. aka addiction. aka Color Affection.|
See it all started with this hat:
I had some leftovers from my Chartres Socks and a skein of Mulled Wine that was kicking around and I thought they would be a lovely combo. I planned on making a simple slouchy hat. Perfect idiot knitting. Perfect sample of a few of my colorways.
And then I took said knitting to my knitting group:
And they told me that combo would make a pretty Color Affection:

So I went home and dug through my dye rejects pile and found this combo:
|Mulled Wine, Chartres, Sea. LOOK HOW PRETTY.|
|We're obsessed with the park these days.|
I didn't realize when I cast on in the heat of the moment that I would be striping with just the blue and the almost completely blue variegated. I was picturing the stripes more like the ones on the hat:
|But is it as pretty as the hat?|
So I'm basically struggling with the following options:
1.) Restart with the Mulled Wine as the primary. If I really don't want the blue to be the edging then you I knit that part with the Wine, too. Or not. But either way it's dumb to spend hours on something you're Meh on. FROG IT AND START OVER.
2.) Seriously, are you insane? You're going to frog both a hat and HOURS worth of this shawl? Because "you're not feeling it?" What is wrong with you! It looks lovely. The wine will look lovely on the border. JUST KEEP KNITTING.
What do you guys think?
