I will admit at first I was wow-ed by the Cromarty..I thought - that would be so cool..But the Vivian is so nicely shaped. And the pattern is very interesting. The cromarty is boxy. A nicely decorated box.
The Marg Tudor is quite fancy.
Ok if I had a word to describe each (if I may take the liberty)
Aran Cable - thick + already did one (not me - you!)
Vivian - flirty + intriguing
Cromarty - old + solid
Marg tudor - old + flirty

Oh and thank you for the pattern link- I will investigate those today!

Y'know, I hadn't realized it, but ALL of her stuff is boxy. :giggle: I still like it...

My concern with Vivian is that most of the models are.....young. The sweater is SO fitted.....I have...bumps. And small bulges. And boobs. :lol: I'm not sure I can wear it and still look.....classy isn't the word I want, but it fits. If that makes sense.

I *really* am leaning towards Margaret Tudor. The more I look at it and read other people's comments.....I need to think about and price the yarn. Looks like I need approx. 3500 yards (one person ordered 18 balls of Naturespun Sport...which figures up to 3360 or so. I like having a bit extra, just in case!)...so.....need to go to KnitPicks. (Naturespun is $4/ball. So....approx. $80 for the sweater - not bad, but I'd like to go cheaper. :lol: )
