Happy Friday everyone! I was hoping for a little advice today! My friend's birthday is coming up and I would like to knit her the exquisite Citron. Ever since the Winter 2009 issue of Knitty came out I have been stalking this pattern! I look at it probably two or three times a day! I'm not kidding. Why have I been stalling, you ask?
Well, here is my dilemma.... I would like to make one for my sweet friend (who I will not mention for obvious reasons), and one for ME!! I don't usually knit for myself, but I am really, really crushin' on this shawlette. This sensation could be lost after I knit it once, but let's assume this love affair does not wear off right away. My dilemma is that I have purchased two skeins of Malabrigo lace for this project (that I am planning to knit twice), but I don't know which color I should knit for who. The Water Green is OHHHHHH SOOOOOO pretty and refreshing, but I think both my friend and I would probably wear the Black more. Both of us would look nice in the Water Green, but the Black is so classic for such a sweet shawlette. My oh my, the woes of knitting... what am I to do?
Sincerely looking for advice,
