This is the swatch for the SFCKAL. I am going to do the Northwest Sunset vest. It is made with Jamieson and Smith Shetland 2 ply on a size 2 needle. My gauge is not quite right, am going to do another using a size 3. I am thinking of changing the burgundy to a very dark blue and the white to a pale yellow which would make the pattern stand out more. It's a cold, windy, snowy day here in Maine today, good day to sit by the fire and knit!

I agree that a dark blue would look better than the red, more in keeping with the muted tones of the SFC books, not as much contrast in most yarns. Guess that means you are in for another trip to the LYS? Don't call me! I'm way over yarn budget for the year already.
