Startitis Paralysis: A condition in which one is burning to start a new project but is paralyzed with indecision on which pattern/yarn combo to use.
I have a literal floor-to-ceiling tower of sock yarn.
I have a shelf full of sock pattern books, thousands of patterns available on the Internet, my hard drive, and Ravelry.
I frequently browse through the books and the pattern databases. I flag patterns I like. I like several patterns. Why do I have such a hard time deciding on which sock pattern to start next?
In case you think I’m kidding about the tower:
That entire second column is fingering weight yarn. The first column of that style of tubs is Knit Picks yarn, some of which is also sock yarn. I have a lot of sock yarn.
Clearly, I need professional help.
