my playoffs goal

Originally uploaded by knit_north
Ok - i hardly want to stay this out loud because i'm not sure if i'll make it.... but I want to have this sweater done by the time the Stanley Cup is handed over to the winning team!
the picture shows a little more than a week's progress - so yeah i better hurry

i was cursing the purple earlier but it is growing on my now ...
the other thing is: why is the ribbing curling?? hopefully that will sort itself out with blocking

i'm about to start a fair isle sweater (Autumn Rose by Eunny Jang) - totally excited -
but still need a few colours - i'm in victoria next week so i'll actually be able to pick out colours in front of me instead of guessing over the web.

here is my swatch - i think i need a deeper gray and a brighter turquoise (instead of the moorgrass)
i think i’ll also swap out the shetland black with a deep purple
i tried out spruce and tartan - i like the darker green -tartan- better
