Yes, I joined another knit-a-long!
All are beautiful. You see my dilemma? I need help. So which is your favorite?

what a decision. i am quite partial to the baltic sea stole but seeing as i am on a very strict student budget and thus couldn’t afford the couple of dollars for the pattern (sad i know :0) i would probably knit the print o the wave. but they are all gorgeous! x
Hmm, if you go triangular, I vote Icarus. If you go for rectangular, I vote Baltic. I’m not much help, am I!
i’m knitting leaf lace right now. it’s pretty easy. i also plan to knit icarus and print o’ the wave someday. they are all beautiful!
All are beautiful but you have quite a contrast in difficulty there. If you want something easy for summer knitting go with Leaf Lace but if you really want to challenge yourself then Print O’ the Wave would do that.
Gotta agree with Margene about the differences. I’m nearly done with Leaf Lace. It was quite easy. Um, I’m getting a little bored with it and I’m glad it’s almost done (yeah, well, it will be once I order more yarn. Why would I think 770 yards is sufficient when the pattern clearly states 1000?) But it is lovely and I’m VERY happy I made it. Me love Evelyn Clark.
I’m on a stole kick right now, so just from my own personal taste, I’d go with one of the two stoles. I hate to add this when you’ve already gotten it narrowed to four and all, but have you visited the Fiddlesticks website?
I chose Icarus for my. I have a Leaf Lace that suffered troubles upon return from a vacation and I’m just not in the mood to figure out what the trouble is. But I adore both of the stole patterns you picked as well.
I really like the Baltic stole, there is something different and modern about it.
Icarus is pretty, yet my eye is constantly drawn to the big yo’s running down the spine instead of the beautiful border. I’d probably prefer the leaf lace over it.
Oh well! You’re making it so hard for me! First you post a comment on my blog saying that I should start to knit the rambling rose. Fine, but then I visit your blog and suddenly I get an urge to knit lace this summer instead. Not much help! So now i have even more knit-options and even less time! 😀 As udecisive as I am, I can’t even say which one of the patterns I would have chosen…
Good luck anyway!
Print ‘O the Wave hands down ~I feel good about my decision.
