I really hate to sound all wishy-washy and indecisive.
However, I find myself in a very wishy-washy and indecisive place right now, and I was hoping that you all could help a girlfriend out...
I've been wanting to splurge a little and make something kind of luxurious. So yesterday I picked up this absolutely lovely yarn (at Knitch, naturally!)
It feels like a dream - and it's actually quite dreamy to knit with. And so very, very very soft...
(So much so that I would love to make a sleeping bag out of it and snuggle up in it and just cocoon... )
But since that seems hardly practical, I thought I'd start small - with a scarf.
And what I want to do is something simple, something classic.
Kind of timeless and rich looking.
So I decided to go with a simple cable. That's classic, right? Timeless...
But - is it also boring? A bit staid perhaps???
I keep going back and forth - and this is where I call upon your help.
Feel free to be brutally honest* - classic or boring? Is this rich and luxurious-looking? Or rather pedestrian and I can do better?
I've not invested too much time in this so far, so I can frog it if need be. It will, however, take a chunk of time to complete - and I don't want to invest the time if I'm headed down the wrong path...
I've been eyeing a few other ideas - like the Broken Leaves, and the Spiral (which I know is not really "classic" in the traditional sense of the word, but I think it might be quite cool!) Even the Knitty patterns "Branching Out" and "Wavy" are catching my eye.
Thank you so much - I appreciate your opinions!
*But not brutal! My fragile ego is still smarting from being called a spoiled brat a few posts back. :)
But I still love you, Capello...
