So... Thank you for the kind wishes on my birthday.
This is where I've got to with the pullover front, using those autumnal Shetland yarns which came into my hands recently. I was using as my model a long-line Fair Isle pullover by Lesley Stanfield, in a wonderful collection of glowing russets and browns. Of course, I was choosing my own patterns from Sheila McGregor, and using the yarns I had in hand.
The thing is, I'm not reading this as autumn. Looks more like spring to me - that bright, daffodil yellow, lit by the white background colour. Where I'd thought to put a single line of scarlet, as in, sprays of berries, it looks more like the centres of narcissi. But I don't absolutely dislike it. If winter comes, can spring be far behind? as someone wrote. So, should I continue in this vein or rip it out and go for a darker, richer palette?
Menwhile, the reliable outcomes of two colours of acrylic and a band of pattern. I'm approaching forty of these now.
