Mystery Stole

I have signed up to knit a mystery stole. This is my first venture into lace knitting so wish me luck!

My first big decision is which colour? The instructions say:
"The colors I recommend for this stole are solid, earthy, non-vibrant, non-variegated, non-fuzzy. ... This stole design and theme are best suited for black, white, pink, grey, green, etc. as long as it is not a primary, bright vibrant color. The only exception to this is if you were able to use a silver or gold yarn of some kind. Regardless, be sure to pick something you like and I’m sure the stole will be beautiful."

So - I have found a supplier of a suitable yarn but now need to choose my colour... Here are some pics - please let me know what you think.

Suede:


Sable:


Ruby:


Plum


Mahogony


Indigo


Copper


Basil

I'm really liking the "ruby" and the "copper" colourways! But they're all lush!!!

I love the copper. Just wanted to say "hello" even though I live in the states now, I grew up in Cumbernauld - nice to see another Scottish knitter trying their hand at the SofS.

I've joined the Secret of the Stole too!

I like the basil, but then I'm partial to green since I chose the Emerald from The Knitter website :)

Hi, I love "ruby" and "sable" best.

But that's a tough one, since all the colours are beautiful!

Happy knitting
