do you hate it when longies/shorties have no trim color? or does it not bother you? I can't seem to decide

It depends. I don't really like the waistband/ribbing in colorway because it always pools funny and differently than the body. But its not really seen when worn anyway.

I hadn't thought of that!

I love trim...but I love "no trim" just as much. The only time I personally "need" trim is when I'm doing scrappy's. I like to pull the scraps together with the trim color. Otherwise I have equal love for both.

I like both I think. I am new to knitting and for me it is cheaper to make my shorties without trim so that is how I am making them.

Doesn't bother me. I'm more bothered by trim that doesn't quite match. Two similar shades of green or brown, etc.

Re: does no trim color bother you??

I think trim looks much better, and have only ordered with trim ... but I don't "hate" no trim. I do hate pooling and would never buy any with pooling, but lack of trim is not a major crime, imo.

ETA: all one colourway can look really nice if there is a texture difference on the cuffs/waist, or if there are cables

Re: does no trim color bother you??

I generally like trim, mostly for the same reason that Mandie said, I hate pooling. I do have one pair of shorties (that I had converted from too short longies) that have no trim that I love. The CW (MM Lorelei) worked up so nice, and there is no pooling.
