Vest Q and DFS WIP
Otay - here is the WIP Diamond Fantasy Shawl - in Koigu. It looks pretty nice when you pin it out! Kewl!
I have a dilemna too though. Here's the samples for the front/neck bands for hubs sweater. One is garter stitch (on the right), one is seed stitch (on the left). I like the buttonholes I practiced in the seed stitch swatch way better than the other buttonholes, so ignore the bad ones! LOL
Whaddya think? Garter/seed? I am leaning a bit towards the garter, but like 'em both okay.
Here's a closeup to help you decide...
