SoTS iii Swatched

Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in Raspberry Heather on 3.5mm needles. (Sorry about the shadows from the window frame.)
Now decision time: which beads? The gold lined amethyst (on the right) or the copper lined crystal (on the left)?

the ones on the right. This is a gorgeous color you chose. It will be beautiful.

I am going to be difficult. I like the ones on the left. The lace looks likes delicate flowers and the yellow beads appear like the centers scattered. Either it will be beautiful!

I'm not going to be a tie-breaker on those first two votes... I'm going to say that I love the ones on the right, but they get lost in the not-VERY close-up photo, so the one on the left would be ideal if you really want the beads to show up more than a few inches away...

It's all in the look you want. (And I want to swatch tonight!)

I like the contrast bead.
(says the girl who had lovely silverlined beads that took away from her apple pink swatch. The other appears too dull in the picture

The swatch is great. No help with the bead choice from me though, I like both!! LOL

if you haven't already decided...my vote is, Go for the GOLD (lined beads).
