Mary, you are SO SO SO sweet!!!!
The panel in question (the BORING one
) is 51sts wide. Do you have the book "Knitting on the Edge" by Nicky Epstein?? I just got it from the library today and I'm loving some of the rib/cable combo patterns. I like the 2x2 rib with travelling cables (on page 43 of the book, if you have it)....anything like that really interests me.
But I will gladly consider anything you may come up with. I want it to look balanced and also suit the other panel that I DO currently like, the one from the pattern that I linked above.
Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
Oh, and thank you thank you thank you :sunny:
