The results are in!

Hello, wonderful knitbloggers. I post some bead pictures and 47 comments later (as of Sunday noon), I think I can safely say that all of you have opinions! I won't go into details of how I scored your responses, other than to say it was consistent bead to bead. Here are the results:

So it looks like you guys like #3!

I bet you're all wondering which one is the color of the Honda?

This isn't my neighbor's Honda, I wasn't able to take a picture of it because it's not parked in its usual spot right now. But I'm pretty sure this one is the same color, and I'm pretty sure this color is called, "graphite pearl." In real life, the Honda color is very close to the color of silvery-gray hematite.

I guess you can tell that I'm leaning towards beads #4 or #10. I spent some time with Colleen and Paula this weekend, and in addition to having a blast with them (note: must meet up with them again), they were able to advise me on bead selection in real life. They had the brilliant idea to look at the beads from a distance, and told me that, excluding the white beads, the only ones you can see from 10 feet away are #4. I agree that #3 and #10, which you guys prefer, are subtle and sparkly and lively, all at the same time, but the fact is you can't see them against the fabric from 10 feet away. I tried to capture that with my digital camera, but I think you just have to be there. I will consult with my Sunday Stitch 'n Bitch today, but not before I'll go to Beadworks and get beads #4!

It's smart of you to consult your real-life friends, since things look differently as photographed, AND because they're the ones who are going to have to see you in the thing. :)

If you have an opinion you HAVE to go with it because you're the one that's going to wear the top. It won't matter what anyone else thinks. If you love it you'll wear it. If you think you compromised in the design you may not.

I missed your polls...but I must say that I chose #3 as soon as I saw...so horray for #3. It will look wonderful...gotta love honda!

It's hard to capture everything in a digital photo...and besides, as Lou says, you're the one wearing it!

ah, but the question is: Do you *want* people to be able to see the beading on your sweater from 10 feet away?

Hey kathy ... You always have such fun adventures going on over here!! Love the beaded project. Love #4's and #10's ... you can't go wrong with either of them. And, the Tivoli is on my must-have-for-summer-list! :) Take care!

Very interesting poll. I would have said 3 or 4, but you're going to have to choose the best one for you (like you didn't already know that!). I can't wait to see what you get.

They're talking about your Tivoli on the knitty board.

You're so cool. ;)

So I was off-line all weekend and missed the poll, bummer for me. But I think your choice of #4 is excellent. I'm so excited to see you knit this.

Ah, I didn't get to vote either! Wah! But I really like #4 and I think your peeps are right about it looking the best from a distance. Have fun building up your bead stash!

I didn't get to vote or comment before, but my favorite is definitely #4 - it's the same color as my car too! (not an Accord though) Can't wait to see how this project turns out... you always seem to come up with super creative and cute projects!

Yay! Bead choice # 4 won! No point going to all the trouble of putting beads in if they won't show.
