Mystery Stole 3 swatch....decisions, decisions!

I have my yarn, beads and tiny crochet hook. I don't need any help in getting this started.
Okay...........I DO need some help. I usually know what I want but not in this case. I can't believe I'm so undecided!
The question is:
Do you like the top portion (above the white cord)? Or,
Do you like the bottom portion?
What do you think?
I realize I should pick what I like but I need YOUR help. I know there are expert lace knitters lurking out there and I would love to hear your opinions. I would be honored.

I am in no way an expert, but they both are lovely. The more open portion at the bottom might let the patterning show through a bit more though.
Very nicely done.

i like the definition of the stitches in the top half best.

I am no expert either, but would vote also for the bottom portion. The whole swatch is looking nice though, lovely colour!

I like the top part better - the pattern seems more refined :-) The color is beautiful.

I have never knit lace, but I like the bottom better. It's more open and I like the pattern better that way.

I like the lower; the stockinette is lovely in both, but if you can get more contrast between that and the YO's, why not go for it? (Also an MS3 participant!)

The lower one is more to my taste, but I tend to like my lace more open. :-)

Both are gorgeous!
