Fair Isle swatch: part two

Fair Isle swatch: part two

The pattern is the same, but I skipped the darkest background colour and moved the red to a single row in the middle.

It turned out the way I hoped, and I like it a lot better this way: attention drawn to the centre instead of back and forth between the border edges.

Next I will play with the three shades of green in my stash.

I'm jealous of your swatching, I've been wanting to do that for a while now. I also recently got The Book of Fair Isle Knitting and it has really inspired me to knit more colorwork.
