Knitting Slump

Sorry my post will be a little lackluster today. The camera is lost somewhere. :-(
Well my knitting is in a little bit of a stand-still right now. I am so indecisive at the moment about what I want to work on. I started that Mocha Cafe afghan, but have scrapped that project. If you haven't seen it its an entirely intarsia afghan, and I thought it would be a good way to force myself to improve my intarsia skills. No way Jose it just made me super frustrated. So its a gonner.
Then I cast on for my socks for my Sockapalooza Pal. I went the to the LYS with my pattern in mind and I thought I found the most perfect yarn for what she describes as her likes. But now I'm really not sure. I'm really scared she won't like what I've picked out, or if my idea of earthy browns differs from hers. I don't know what to do.
So for stress relief (and God knows my stress level is off the charts right now) I cast on an entrelac baby afghan. Its in some variagated pastel acrylic and its brainless knitting so it has been perfect. I wish I had my camera because for really cheap yarn its turning out really pretty.
Oh yeah and I also signed up for the Manos Block of the Month club at my LYS. I figured I needed to socialize more and that would be a perfect place to do so, plus I get to knit with some beautiful yarn to make a pretty cool afghan. I'm really excited about it, but I have to wait a long time until the next meet up, its not until late next month.

The first afghan sounds frustrating for you...Life's too short to knit something you hate!
Way to go on the Manos Squares. That one sounds like it will be quite beautiful, and lovely to work on, too!
