It is beautiful! I agree with Artlady, the crosses show up well already, even in the photographs. I think it's lovely as is. I can't wait to see the finished product!

Lovely, lovely...and serene to look at. I agree with the others...no bold outlining...the crosses speak for themselves, and are so pretty the way they are! (Don't guild the lilly, as my mother always used to say!)

Great job, please post a final pic!

This piece looks amazingly beautiful! Can't believe it's your first big effort. I'm still learning to knit evenly...
Can't wait to see the finished product...

p.s. I wouldn't add any other colour either. The piece is full of texture that is stunning in it's own right. Adding a colour could really distract from this.

Agreed! TEMA raises a good point! My rule of thumb has been to choose one - color, or texture - and go with that. Objects with tons of texture need simplicity of color. That way the eye is not distracted. And, objects with a ton of color need simplicity of texture. Same reason. Give the eye one focus.

PS LOVE how much texture you've got going on here! KISS (Keep it simple, sweetie!)

Thanks to everyone! I'm just short of halfway finished with this one and I will be sure to post some final shots!

And thank you all for the encouragement.. the only other thing I've been able to finish, up to now, was a single dishcloth LOL! It got discouraging for a while there just frogging everything back to the beginning again

I've done that a lot; still do. Its really rewarding when you can finish something. Keep up your determination and if you ever get discouraged I'm sure you can just look here for more encouragement ^.^
