Love them both, but I’m so very much very really in love with the top one.

I’ve always loved the backside of stranded knitting.
Last winter, I saw a fair number of commercial sweaters for sale that featured inside-out fair isle.
And it’s worth noting that the famed Japanese court lady and diarist, Sei Shonagon, while catalgoing the backside of a piece of embroidery and the inside of a cat’s ear as Squalid Things, was silent on the subject of stranded knitting!
I see that you’re coming to San Mateo California. How exciting for Bay Area knitters.
