Help me make a decision

I'm trying to choose one of my new cashmere lace yarns to use for a special project. It's a mag submission and that's all I'm going to say. Oh and it's lace, which isn't a real give away as I'm using a lace yarn.

The yarn, btw, is new to my range and is definitely here to say. It's a lace weight but not too thin at about 700m per 100gr. A lot of the skeins will be sold in 50gr so affordable and plenty for a scarf.

Anyway here is my choice:


Choice 1:



Choice 2:



Or perhaps this one:



or this one:



Here they are all together separated by a small skein of gorgeous blue.



What do youthink? I love the first three ones and I want to keep them all but one will be used for this secret project, one will be sent of as adonation to a magazine and one will be listed on Etsy. if only I could decide.

By the way, the cashmere lace is gorgeous to dye with. I've done a few solids and these 4 variegated ones and they're nice and easy to dye so I'm going to be doing some more of those soon. Got a big custom dye order to do first though. There will still be quite a lot of lace listed on Etsy this week thoug hwith lots more next week.

And guess what else is happening next week? YarnAddict Yarns is 6 months old. 6 December its 6 months since I registered on Etsy and started selling my yarns. a lot has happened in 6 months and I've learnt so much and had so much fun. To celebrate there will be a big competition on the blog next week with some gorgeous yarn prices so make sure you pop in every day. Not sure which day the competition will be launched yet.

Okay, next on my to-do list today is taking Em to netball. She's on the school team and they have a match this afternoon. They normally loose or draw but they still love it. All the teams in teh league are year 5 & 6 with most kids being year 6 but Em's school has a team of 2 year 6 pupils and the rest year 5 which means they have a lot less experience and for most of them its the first year of playing in the league so they're not doing badly really. Watching it gives me a chance to knit.

Happy knitting,

Oh I see your problem, they are all beautiful. Choose two would be my pick, it looks like it would lend it self to suddle changes. SIX months...really! congradulations, I think I found you about that time. Dec will be my six months of making socks with you and I bought several things off your Etsy store at the same time I joined the club. I would love to buy all your sock and lace yarn, but then I think I might get in trouble with hubby. HA ha. Your work is lovely.Thanks Anni and Congradulations. Laura

Anni said...

Thank you Laura. I can't believe it's six months already. It's so encouraging when people like my work.

When I dyed the cashmere I had decdied on choice 1 but now I'm leaning more towards choice 2.

6 month anniversary :)

Kate said...

It's hard to do a choice, but if you can't use them all, my choice would be no 2. It is beautiful.
And congrats with the 6 months shop-anniversary.

Hattie said...

OMG I love the blue purple and green one. Is it going in the shop??? Lol So obviously I say use any one but that one. ;) I also like the first one a lot.
