And who is this swatch for?


Venezia from the winter '06 Interweave Knits. I really like this sweater, except for the "old gold" and "yellow ochre" colors.

I'm using Knitpicks palette, and when I'm sure about the colors I want to use, I'll order enough to make the sweater.

I've already decided to swap out the gold-brown for a slightly lighter color. Here's how that should look, poorly tiled:


I should probably swatch up some more possibilities. Maybe cream, dove, light grey and something else as background colors?
