Is this a silly yarn choice?
I was considering making the Argyle pullover shown in Creative Knitting, Jan 2007. For the body, I would be using Nature's Wool bulky and for the diamonds, Malabrigo. The colors look awesome together and the gauge works...but I feel a bit silly using the scratchier yarn for the body and a soft yarn for the accents.

On the other hand, I only have one skein of the malabrigo in that color and I don't really like doing scarves so...

Is this just silliness and I should hang on to the malabrigo for something else? I have a bunch of malabrigo in other colors (enough for a sweater or two).
