Now What Are You Doing?

I thought this was going to be a shawl....a simple shawl.

Have you ever started knitting something just because you thought you should but the whole time you are, you keep thinking you could have made a better choice? Thats what is happening with my Gulf of Mexico colorway. I'm just not happy with it as a shawl....I think it really wants to be a sweater.

So, instead of ripping out the shawl, I started doing stockinette on just a few of the stitches to get a small gauge to get the feel of it in stockinette. Then, if it really wants to be a sweater, I'll have a start on what needle to use. And if not, I only have to rip back to the start of the stockinette and make it a shawl.
