Decisions Decisions

Wool-d you like to help me make some decisions? Sorry. Sometimes when I don't know how to start a post, bad puns are the default. I just got my wool in the mail, and oh boy, I feel like I opened a can of worms. First off the brown windowpane wool is heavy. Too heavy for a coat even... maybe. But it was only $7, so I really can't be too upset. It will make an excellent blanket if nothing else.

and it's reversible!
The other piece I bought is a lot of yards (5 or 6 maybe) of this black and white check, which is a good weight for coats.

I love it, but I don't know what it's destiny is yet. A cape?

A motorcycle jacket?

Burdastyle "Larissa" pattern by amibambini
A... shawl collar jacket thingy?

The coat pattern I am competing for over at So Zo?

Don't you enter the competition too! I want this pattern.
I have no idea how I will make up my mind. To make matters worse, the kindly eBay seller who sold me these also sent these swatches of the other wools he has:

Oh crud, right? Look at all these options! I'm not supposed to be spending money, but when will I ever find wool for $4/yard again? Surely I can't just pass this up. Help! What do I buy? What do I make? What do I do!?

  1. I am dying for that Simplicity 4944 pattern! I cannot find it anywhere at a decent price :( except Etsy and all of them have been sold!
