Opinions, Please!

I am going to start working on Pavillion again, probably tonight, but I need something to take with me to Oklahoma City next week and the Women’s College World Series. Pavillion does NOT fit the bill for travel knitting.

The last two years, I’ve knit plain stockingette socks while watching softball championships, and those are two of my most-worn pairs of socks. You can see them HERE and HERE.

So here are a few options for what I will take with me to the WCWS next week:

Option #1:
STRLcatty1.jpg

STR-Lightweight in Cattywampus that I got in Maryland. But I kind of want to knit Everyone Outta the Pool with that skein, and I’m really in the mood for a basic ribbed leg on a sock.

Option #2
Yankees4.jpg

Cabin Cove Yankees sock yarn. Well-marinated in the stash. Would be a plain stockingette sock with a ribbed leg.

Option #3

Zen Yarn Garden in “Represent” which was Roxanne’s entry into the Dye for Glory contest last summer. Also for a plain stockingette sock.

So those are your options. Please help me decide!

When in doubt, I always go with Roxanne. In fact, I have two skeins of her yarn staring at me right now waiting for me to make the first move.

My first choice is Cattywampus,but if you're not ready to knit Everyone Out of the Pool (which would be perfect), then Represent!

I gotta say Yankees b/c it would fit the theme of the trip.

I'm no help -- I like them all! But if I had to choose, I'd say Yankees. Those really bright colored skeins scream for a slip stitch pattern.

The two pairs you've done are really bright, so along those lines I think my vote is Represent. If you're looking for a change, Yankees would fit the bill...but I must admit I have something against that colorway name. LOL.

I like the last one, Represent!

I have several skeins that would be perfect for "Everyone out of the Pool" -- guess I have to get that pattern! I like all of your yarns, but #3 the best...

I say Yankees! I'm on a bit of a blue streak lately ;)

Dee said...

My vote is for Represent! I love the colors! (plus you can tell all your peeps about it and sound like a rap star...)
