It looks like I should be able to order my yarn this weekend after I get paid  Grin

I'll be knitting it in two yarns, the background color YarnTreehouse Melody 2  http://yarntreehouse.com/ which is a fingerling multi colored yarn I already had in stash was was going to try to knit up before starting.   I'm going to order Knit Picks Bare fingerling (the bare that goes with palette) for the main color, and a green for the hem's.
I'll be swatching with the Melody and gray pallete to make sure it will work.

Ok, I swatched last night, and I'm off by one stitch lenght wise, and on target width wise.  On a sweater knit at this small of a gauge, will that be that much of an issue? Huh

MartiniMonsters:

I'm really curios to see how your progress with venezia is going. Do you have some new pics to show us??

I finally started my first arm a couple days ago, I'm so slow. Is it a good excuse that I'm graduating from college in about a month? (But I'm only taking two classes)

Since you requested, I'll take a picture of the body, when I get around to it.

Edit: I'm fast at getting around to it.


The whole body


I think this is the best shot as far as being true to the colors.

Recommended yarn yes. The background colors no, the pattern colors yes.

Thanks, that's an awesome way to describe it.

It is itchy, there is no question about that. I plan on wearing something underneath. The colors are really great though.

I'm using metal needles. Maybe you'd get a better gauge than me if you use bamboo.

when discussing how to do fair isle, eunny says you should use wooden needles to space your sts, and she's right. its hard to maintian gauge on metal.
