Peanut Butter Jelly - this time, it's personal!

Chart A is done on my MS3! Happy Dance! Huzzah! Three cheers and a tiger for ME!!! Ok, so I am still WAYYYYYY behind, but this time, I REALLY LIKE IT! So to me, at least, it was well worth the trip to the Frog Pond (You know, to "rip-it"!) Ahem. Sorry. Back to the knitting. Here is a picture of my Peanut Butter Jelly Shawl, in all its Chart A glory:



And here, just to refresh everyone's memory, is what Chart A looked like in the Autumn colours:


So......What does everyone think? Which one looks better? I mean, I like the purple better, but does the shawl want to be purple? Hmmmmm....I shall have to go and give it some thought...

That looks great!!!!! I prefer the purple, it just seems to show the pattern off. I don't know!!!! I'm almost finished with Chart B!!!!!!

Hi!

I found your blog from the Mystery Stole group (that I am not allowing myself to start until after my summer master's class is done) and I couldn't believe the similarity in our cats! (links to my sweetie's blog, because he takes the most interesting pics of them)

Hopefully in two weeks I will be stoleing along, too. (PS, love the purple)

I love the purple.
I also had a similar problem. At first I used KP redwood forest heather (I think that is the name) and i really didn't like the way the swatch came out. My mom (thanks mom) stopped by a yarn store by her and bought new yarn. It is a wedgewood blue and I am loving how the swatch came out. Now I have to get new beads ; ).

And I love the cupcake. Very cute.

I vote for the purple, as well.

Both are lovely. Go with what you like and will wear! :)

I like to wear the autumnul colors but seeing the two photos together, I'd be knitting the purple MS3 Stole. Lovely work!

Personally, I prefer the purple.I think it shows the pattern better. Both do look nice, though, just the purple looks better.

I think it really wants to be purple! It's beautiful.

Judy said...

I'm liking the purple, myself.

I vote purple as well. However, both are beautiful. Perhaps one for the fall and the other for spring/winter?
