I Need Your Thoughts!!

Help! I need you ladies to please share your opinions on THIS sweater...is it cute or just a bit to...hmmm... well...you see my problem. :) I was thinking in something more tweedy, less salt and pepper-y. And with some fantastic vintage belt buckle on the sash? Thoughts? It...it just looks so cozy... :)

Love it, go for it! If you didn't want to do black and white, select a less contrasting color option - light/dark pink, blues (think denim), red and black, etc. Pick your two favorite colors. Wish I could knit like that!

I actually really like it, although the black/white is a bit bold for my particular taste. I think maybe a brown/creme or blue/lighter blue combo might look good.

I think you'd look very lovely in it. Do tell us what you decide:-)

Lots of love,
Sommer

I love it! I would prefer it in a solid color, though, or, like Peggy said, maybe a less contrasting color combination.

Haha! The word verification is sweadr.

I'll echo the others and say that I love it! I actually really like the colours shown in the picture, too... probably not for me, but in theory. :)

Oh! It's lovely! I like the idea of adding a fantastic vintage belt buckle on the sash - that would take it from a great sweater to a WOW sweater!

It sorta screams lonely old librarian or crazy cat lady.

Louie said...

yes I think it would be lovely but I would do it in different colours

I'd love to see that sweater made up in, a you call it, "something more tweedy." Or pink and cream, but that's a personal bias ;-)

Do you already have a belt buckle in mind for this project?

I think it is old lady like.

The sweater is nice, but the yarn colors hurt my eyes. Maybe it's the lighting in the photo. Hope you use some other color!

Heather said...

the shape of it is lovely, but the yarn. . . makes it a little dizzying to look at. . . something a little friendlier to the eye, softer.

I'm thinking old lady too, but maybe you could rock it!
