What shall I finish next?

Do you have project monogamy issues?  If you don't, may as well find a new blog to read today, as my topic du jour will be incomprehensible to you.  I do commend you for your maturity and dedication - but if you have the fortitude to start one thing and completely compete it before you start a new thing, then we may have  dialogue issues.  Because I can't do that.  At all.

If you're like me and have an attention span shorter than that of the average May fly, read on.  (I have no data about the attention span of a May fly, but as they only live a day or so, it can't be all that impressive.)  I have a lot of items that are in varing stages of doneness and they need to be completed.  But which to do first? It's a big decision.  And you need to help me.

In no particular order - we have:

1. My 'Psycho-deli' shawl.  It's very organic, growing from the bottom point up from sock yarn scraps.  All the stringers you see hanging off will eventually be woven in, as I am no longer a huge fan of fringe. 
 
2. A little shawlette/scarf made with 2 of my hand-dyed yarns.  The pattern name is 'High Speed Knitting,' which I'm sure it is for people who actually finish the item before starting 12 more projects.  

 
 3.  A lovely Liesl, made with a wool/bamboo blend yarn.  I stalled out on this after completeing one sleeve, just to see how they went.
They go good.  So why am I not knitting the heck outta this?  I do not know.





4.  A linen stitch cowl made of sock yarn scraps.  This has been hanging around since March.  It's fun.  I like the idea of it.  I need to finish it.





5.  A cute little super simple wrap called 'Just Knit It'.  Which literally is pretty much what you do.  It's garter stitch.  I am further along on it than this photo  indicates, but not THAT much further.  It's a light fingering weight yarn I dyed my own self.



Comment to cast a vote.  There are no prizes other than the warm glow of knowing you've helped me along the road to decision making.  (Yeah, bummer, I know.)

Number 3! Or maybe number 1. But definitely number 3!

Whichever one is closest to being done. Or whichever one makes you smile the most.

Number 3. Probably.

Okay, I'll jump on the number 3 bandwagon and then I'd say 4, 1, 2 and then 5. Definately start with 3, though, you could be wearing that now.

Before I read the comments, I wanted you yo finish Liesel...is this because I recently watched the sound of music? Maybe, maybe not...
Oh, and linen stitch ... in fingering yarn? Oy!
