Opinions Please...

See this shawl?

See these colours?

It's actually amazing that I have been able to narrow it down to 3 choices. I like the opal because it's my birthstone. I like the autumn because it's my favorite season. I like the wine because, well, I'm partial to anything purple or red.

I would like to thank Curlie Girl for this enticement to begin with. You see, she also wants to make the Lotus Blossom shawl and introduced me to its beauty and my present quandary [drooling on my keyboard must now stop before I get an electric shock], which is also her quandary, so I can sympathize [I really don't because she is trouble, enticing me with all her delectable bears and projects]. I'm wondering, have you chosen a colour yet, Kim? [g]

Now, in the poll box I've included the choice of "none of the above - go for a solid colour," which is definately an option. But, I just want to say that I have and will in the future make plenty of solid colour shawls and I may eventually make this shawl in a solid. For the time though, I'd like to make it in a multi-colour and I'm mainly asking for help in the multi colour group.

So, hence this poll for you knitters out there, because I know you all have impeccable taste.

I'm torn between the Autumn and Wine. The Opal yarn is gorgeous, but I don't think it would be nice as this shawl for some reason. Hmmm.

Autumn, 100%. And if you don't choose it, send it to me. It's too gorgeous to be left sitting in the stock room!!!

I voted for wine but I think all of the choices are good ones. :)

i too, am drawn to purples & blues, but that's not why i chose wine (can i get some cheese with that, preferrably a well-aged brie?). i chose wine because i think the colors are most like each other, and i feel if you get too many different colors in there, you'll lose the effect of the lace pattern. i know this isn't the same shawl, but go check out this shawl:

she just did a peacock feathers shawl in variegated blues, and it's stunning.

Oh, oh, oh.....must have the wine colourway, but that's just me! And oh, oh, oh I ADORE that shawl...and oh, oh, oh, must order yarn to actually knit lotus blossom...hehe! You'll have to let me know where you're going to order from/buy delicious I whining too much about wine (sorry, couldn't resist, I am a silly girl)!

I voted for the wine, but being a "Winter" (has anyone else ever been "draped"?) I am very partial to the "cool" colours. I would NEVER buy/knit/wear autumn colours, but they might look GREAT on you. It IS a stunning colourway.

I just ordered this pattern and was disappointed that I had yarn in my stash to use because I absolutely love all the colors. Tough choice and I know I wouldn't be able to narrow it down to 3!

I picked Opal. I LOVE that. that was the least fave of the three. I don't know why!

Another vote for wine, I love the colorway and since I can't knit with it, you should! LOL! ;)
