For those joining us late, Kay and I have agreed to knit each other a sweater. We did an exchange during the summer, and I ended up with a plummy Kelly that I have been wearing like a security blanket now that temperatures have dropped below eighty. Kay now owns with a turquoise Moonbeam that she will pair with an eyelet skirt from Knitty come next spring. Superfoxy.
We thought this was so successful, and so wildly friendly, that we’re doing it again. I am ready to go on Sassy, a beautiful yarnover-rich chenillefest. (Note, please, that I am not complaining or whining about the chenille. You may check www.deathtochenille.com for that.) Kay is on the cusp of starting Elfin, along with every other Rowanette in the universe participating in Lis’s knitalong. The one sticking point is the trim color for this Elfin. We agree that the charcoal Felted Tweed suits perfectly my need for gray sweaters (one a year, please), but the trim is up for grabs. Some folks like this navy blue, some folks don’t:
Lis, who is NOT going to have any crummy-looking Elfins coming out of her knitalong, suggests this combo:
Please, discerning readers, tell us: which way from here?
Respectfully (and trying to put Kay out of her misery),
