Autumn Oregon KAL Starts


Alice Starmore's Autumn Oregon" from the Vogue Knitting magazine. Friend Anne is fortunate to have the VY kit so we got together and I matched colors from my stash as closely as possible and it is looking quite nice. I had to change two colors and they just mushed together but I like the result so far. I'm up to row 28 of chart B, and as usual find I can't put it down. The yarns are Jamieson's Spindrift and I am using size 3.0 and 3.5 to get gauge of 7 st per inch. The colors are vibrant and it has kind of a "persian rug" look. Dark and rich. Started on 2/1 and going quite quickly. The pattern is easy to follow, am enjoying this one!

You did a great job with the colors. Yours doesn't look nearly as dark as the VY colors. It looks like you are really making progress.
