So when last we chatted, I had forgotten my Michelle pullover, but had a lovely pile of Patons Canadiana, the New Generation sitting there waiting to be cast on. But what I neglected to tell you is what the heck I was planning on doing with it.
Shame on me.
Well, here it is:
The Mom's Sweater, which is free pattern. I actually saw someone else with this sweater and thought it so cool, and then to my delight discovered it was not only a Patons pattern, but a free pattern to boot. Hurrah on both counts. The original sweater is shown in Patons Decor or Patons Classic Wool, both of which are great choices. But I have had this thing for the New Patons Canadiana ever since I knit my T-Rex. It is so nummy soft. I know I say that every time I talk about the yarn, but it is soft. And all I could think while I was knitting that darn dino, was what a wonderful sweater it would make. The Candadiana, not the dino.
So I made the best substitutions that I could and came up with this palette for the fair isle portion:
Not that there aren't endless color possibilities over there on the Canadiana page. Check it out.
What do you think? What colors would you pick?
