Ok so I need your opinions on something…
(Sorry for the sucky picture... it's very gray out right now. here's a slightly better close-up:)
That would be my Sahara that I was pretty convinced was headed for disaster. Well then I Ravelry’d it and decided that if the armholes are a little large it will just come out with more of a dropped shoulder look. I can live with that. Especially since I plan on wearing a cami under this anyways. So I kept up with the knitting and now I’m at a point where I have to make a decision.
To bling or not to bling.
I knit this swatch of the ribbing for the bottom, neckline, and armholes to check out the bling/no bling situation. I knit two repeats of the pattern w/o bling, then I slipped a bead onto the knitting at the center of each pattern for two repeats:
At first I thought: Needs more cowbell. I mean you can barely even see the bling! But I was pretty married to the plan of centering the beads on the diamonds… I’m picturing neat little rows of sparkle accentuating the v of the neckline. So I think rather than adding more beads I should just use different beads.
Because really when given the choice you always gotta go with the bling.
So ok then. I know how many/where I want them… but which beads should I use?
The Original Red bling:
I think this one may be too subtle.
Shiny Gray Bling:
I think this might be too… white…
Don’t know if this is shiny enough but it could work.
Or Silvery Gray Bling:
Also getting closer…
What do you guys think?
