Decisions, decisions….

I’ve narrowed it down (almost) to either Bayerische or Rivendell.  Both seem to have enough going on that it’ll be interesting knitting.  I’ll be traveling by plane, train, automobile (well, a van) so will have plenty of otherwise dead time to knit.  I’m not the fastest knitter in the world, but I’m not the slowest, either;  my reason for having few FOs is that there’ll be times I won’t knit for weeks on end (and I like starting new projects).

Now I’m looking at yarn.

Apparently Bayerische eats yarn like no tomorrow, so that’ll have to be factored in, especially since I wear a women’s size 9.5.  Shouldn’t be an issue with Rivendell, though.

Both patterns would look best in a solid or semi-solid yarn.

Both designs need a yarn that will give good stitch definition.

So…..(linked to their pics on flickr)…

Koigu: 350yds
BMFA moonstone: 360 yds

Lonesome Stone: 400yds
Sweet Georgia: 420yds
Woolen Rabbit: 450yds
Black Bunny: 490yds

    Oh my gosh! The Woolen Rabbit colorway is gorgeous, but I think you will use the lovely blue Lonesome Stone for the Bayerische!

    Have a lovely vacation 🙂

    Ok my guess is the Bayerische pattern because of the “SEE” clue since it comes from See Eunice Knit, By the way these are great socks and are definitely going into my queue.

    As for the color the only clue I noticed was that this pattern eats up yarn… so maybe the yarn with the most yardage, so I guess Black Bunny

    But I really liked that blue one can’t remember which one, but it was a deep blue reminded me of the ocean.

    Have a great trip
