Decisions, decisions

Thanks for the comments about the driving instructor. I'm glad to know that I wasn't overreacting or being too "special snowflake" about the whole taking the wheel thing. I will probably call the driving school and ask for another instructor. I don't blame the school itself- after all, my last instructor worked for them and was awesome. The Limey thinks I should complain about the latest person and demand my money back, but I don't think I'll go that far.

So, then, next thing I'd like some of your opinions on. I still have some loverly hand-dyed alpaca/silk sock yarn from Jenny Cook left from the two skeins I bought in Hay. I want to make one of these new-fangled shawlettes with it. I made the Anti-Funk with one partial skein and, because I love the gartery goodness of this yarn, I've narrowed it down to two garter-based designs.

Milkweed, by Laura Chau:

or Aestlight, by Gudrun Johnston:

To be perfectly honest with myself, I probably don't have enough yardage for Aestlight, even the smaller size. But I do so love that little bit of lace!

Whaddy'all think?

Aestlight, just because I have it in my queue. :-) And you know what to do if you don't have enough yarn for it... ;-)

I was going to say "Milkweed, all the way" but the longer I´m looking at them Aestlight is staying with me. So, my suggestion is go with Aestlight, and if things go down to the wire yardage wise it´s just an excuse to buy more, as Kate alluded to in her post!

I think Milkweed is gorgeous, and you'd probably get more wear out of it?

Hello. I read your blog quite often, but haven't commented until now. I totally love the yellow shawl, Aestlight. :-)
