What to Knit?

Dilemma - Have 4 balls JoAnn's Sensations Dolcetto in Pink. I've been looking for a bulky weight project for it. Here are my top three contenders:
Sideway Ribs
Lace Leaf Pullover

I'm really leaning toward the Lace Leaf Pullover, but I'm wondering if it will look OK in pink, or if I should exchange it for green. I guess the whole leaf/green thing is what has me thinking about this. Your thoughts? The green would be fairly light. They also have blue, purple, yellow (yuck) and peach.

However, I'm feeling the urge to cast on for this right away, though I have plenty of other projects in the works right now!

I broke down and made my "what to knit" list - and this doesn't include socks and accessories. It would be twice as long then!
I did not note what book/magazine I took them from - and many have the same title. But you get the general idea - the list is long!!!!

Hope she meets your high standards!

  1. I think Banff would look great in pink.

  2. Well, she's prepared for anything. Hot, cold, rain, sun, random swimsuit competitions or a rash of patriotism. It's hard to look good when you're trying to cover all those bases.

  3. Whoa ho ho - that's a long to-knit list, although I admit I see lots of my favorites listed, so if I actually listed them all,,, well, maybe I'd better not scare myself!

  4. Personally I like the sideways rib, but if you decided to do the leaf pullover I think it'd look great in pink. That's one long list of things to make! I'm sure I can think of as many things, too, though. I think my biggest disappointment as a knitter is that I just don't have enough time for it all ... :)

  5. PS, Jenn -- I just saw that you're in Fort Worth. I have relatives in Mansfield, and I visited Yarn Heaven when I was there. Isn't that a fun yarn store? It was the first time I'd touched so many colors of Touch Me.
