Red collection: ponte cardiwrap

This one may get given away, but we shall see.
This is the same red ponte knit as the knee length skirt. The pattern is Simplicity 2603 as before.
The collection is hotting up nicely with 5 pieces now. Not quite time to switch out the red thread on the machines :-)
Quick question about the red striped jersey, do you think this would be better sewn with red thread or white thread?
That's all for today.

Use white thread on the striped knit. Red might show at the seams and I think it might be a little jarring.

Ruthie, regarding your introspective post yesterday; FWIW, I voted for you in my top 3. The reason is that I DO like your easy knit dressing, and your attention to color. I for one won't sew a button front shirt, and pants (trousers) are still hard for me. Working on that though!

Anyhow, I did like that comments could be added, and I did so! SWAP is really just for oneself; I think you give SWAP a good name as you talk through your thinking on each garment, and comment generously on everyone's posts.

I would use white thread. I love the red things you are sewing.

I love your current red collection. I wasn't able to vote in the SWAP but I wanted you to know you were in my top three and I'm sorry you didn't win. Your wardrobes are always so well co-ordinated and I admire your ability to choose colours.
