Opinions, anyone?

I've made some progress on the little Tomten for my niece, but I'm now at a decision point. The body is done, and here's what it looks from the "right" side.

And this is the "wrong" side view.

I have to say, I sorta like the "wrong" side better! I have to decide now, though, before I start on the sleeves. Any strong opinions out there? Pros and cons? I'm all ears!

I love the color choices. I would go with the purl side. I think it has more character

hmmm... that's a tough choice. I like the wrong side. What's the mom like...more muted colors, or more vibrant? Maybe that will help.

Go inside, out! A bold choice but something so wrong *does* feel right :o)

i LOVE the wrong side.....a little softer.

WRONG SIDE! It looks more detailed and like "a friend to knit with" said, a softer look.

WOW, FUN! Can't wait to see it finished.

Wrong is the new right!

I'll stand alone and say I'm strongly drawn to the "right" side, visually. The lines are much cleaner, since the color changes are solid, and therefore gives more ooomph. But maybe that's just me. . .looks great, anyhow!
