What do do you like: WS knitted or purled?

Traditionally Orenburg shawls are knitted in Garter stitch - all rows, front and back are knitted, and all the 2tog are also knitted. This technique creates a shawl that doe not have a "wrong side".
I personally have no problems with "right" side and wrong side. Below I took couple of traditional Orenburg pattern and knitted them knitting the wrong side rows and purling the wrong side rows. What do you prefer?

  1. Well, I like them both. P on the back for expensive yarn and a gift. K on the back for practice and everyday wear. ~ Margaret
