advice please

So lately in the car, I’ve been knitting on this. I don’t knit while I’m driving obviously, but while I’m waiting on Bear or just filling time. Recently, however, I’m started to think it looks rather frumpy. I’ve become very unhappy with the look of the car knitting. So now I’m asking for advice on what to do.

car knitting

I stretched it out so that I could get a better idea of what it’ll look like after it’s washed and blocked. It does look better, but how much better does it look? Worth continuing? Wanna see what I was thinking about doing instead? I have to warn you, it’s very tempting. It makes me want to rip this out faster than a puppy left alone in a house rips up a couch.

Stretched out

This is what I was considering knitting next. Obviously I would put the boarder on both sides. I think it’s pretty. preeetttyy. Can you hear it calling? I’ve been hearing it calling since I bought the book it comes in. Second Book of Modern Lace Knitting by Marianne Kurzel. I bought the First Book too. I love them both, but the Second Book is even more exciting to me.

Possible project

Here’s a really bad edit of what it’ll look like. I’m not terribly good with the image editing software. But can you imagine it? Can you hear it too now? *sighs* It only sounds louder to me now. So really, I’d love love love some advice. I can always knit this when the orenburg style scarf is done, but is that scarf worth finishing? I don’t want to finish it if I’m going to feel like it’s so unattractive I can’t even send it off to the little nieces afterwards. For some reason I seem to have no perspective on it though. It was gorgeous before and now I think it looks terrible.

Bad edit

And to tempt me even further, the mailman dropped off the April fiber from the Spunky Eclectic Club. preeetttyy.

oooh. Pretty

My brother gave me that quotation. I need some advice on some knitting. It’s sunny and gorgeous outside. God willing and the creek don’t rise, there will be pictures, car knitting, lace, and a choice in a post later tonight. I don’t like frumpy.
