Decisions, Decisions

While perusing Ravelry yesterday, I came across this pattern and immediately fell in love. Since I just finished my Icarus shawl (its blocking, photos to come), its time for a new project. My only problem is which color to make. I went shopping in my stash and came up with these combinations.

First the pattern

Now the choices:

The Blue Version

On the left is a Knitwitches yarn in Purple, and on the right is also Knitwitches in blue.

The Pinky Red Version

On the left is Dream in Color Starry in Punky Fuscia, it has sparkle in it. Not sure if that will be distracting. On the right is Malabrigo in Rayon Vert. It is not exactly a solid, but has many of the same colors as the Noro in the center.

The Pinky Green Version

On the left is Wollemeise, which I have been dying to use, but think it might be a bit too bright. On the right is Dream in Color Smooshy in Happy Forest (I used this color to make the February Lady Sweater)

The Red one

This was my original choice. It is one of the Spirit Trail club colors. I love it, but think it might be too red.

I am leaning toward the Blue Version with the blue, or the Pinky Red with the Malabrigo. Would love to do the Red.

Either would be beautiful. That is a lovely scarf/shawl. I also fav'd it. I am partial to the blue version but I really like your red option too. Why not both? Good travel knitting!

I fell in love with it too and very much want to make it. I vote for the blue one.
