Swatching for a possible sweater. This is the first time I've used Knit Picks Palette and I love the way it is knitting up, it feels quite soft. The pattern is from Child's Panel Gansey in Alice Starmore's Book of Fair Isle Knitting (a must have for anyone who likes color work, lots of great historical information too). I tried the pattern with a white background and then with the oranges as the background and I think I'm leaning towards the oranges overall. The jury is out on whether to use the red or brownish orange, I've toyed with the idea of having an ombre effect on the sleeves. The lovely neckline on Eunny Jang's Autumn Rose and the great fit have kept me going back to it again and again, so I may finally be casting on for it. Just in time for summer, a colorwork pullover!
