Help me pick a color
 
I am going to knit Starsky from knitty, but I can't decide what color of Knitpicks Sierra I want to use. In the pics on knitty, Natural looks great, but that color just isn't me. I am leaning towards Mist, but part of me is thinking that mist might be too dark for the cables to show well. what do you think?

I have used Mist in WOTA and, to be honest, I wasnt happy with the color. It was very matte. Reminded me of a prison uniform. The pic makes it look like there's a nice sheen. I used it for clog soles, so it was no big deal for me, but I cant imagine a whole sweater in it.

What about cinnamon??

I ordered Sierra in Cranberry to knit Starsky! I liked the way natural looked too, but it wasn't me either.

I like the cinnamon or wild rose. Hope we get to see pictures along the way. :D

I Love the cranberry and you will love working with it. That stuff is like budda! Anyway I think that the mist would work as well. I am making my mom the Irish Hiking Scarf in coal (her choice :?eyebrow: ) and the cables are showing fine. Not very photogenic but in natural light looks great. Just don't use grey needles :doh: :roflhard: ANyway just wanted to throw that out there for you. I will take a picture for you if I can find my batteries.

I like cinnamon, pool, wild rose, and bud. I have to say either cinnamon or bud would look awesome.

I love the cinnamon (hmmm, maybe I should order some before they run out!). But I love the natural and the cranberry too. Decisions decisions.
