Indecision bliss

Well, I pretty much finished a cardigan I had been working on. I got to the very end, where it calls for scallop-edge crochet detail. I didn't get very far before my wrist started acting up. For some reason, when I crochet, my wrist cracks and I end up getting carpal tunnel. So there's a UFO on my side table. Waahhh!!

As I sat there wondering what to do next, I saw a yummy looking throw in The Yarn Girls' Guide to Simple Knits. Basically, it consists of knitting a single row of various yarns. At the beginning and end of each row, I've been knotting together the ends to secure and create fringe. This project sounded perfect, since I couldn't decide what yarn I wanted to work with.

I made a trip to my stash closet, and laid out all candidates. It appeared I had a lot of yarns in the green/brown category. I grouped together the "finalists" and started knitting! I've been picking a different yarn for each row, and deciding them as I go along. Here's what I have so far:
