I am thinking about making the green gable for myself as a reward after I do all the other handknits that I have planned for christmas presents and I am stuck on what color to use. I :inlove: almost all of the shades available. hmm.. I want to take my time and pick a color I like since the yarn can be a bit pricey. So if anyone has any opinions they'd like to throw my way, go right ahead;)

I made the green gable out of lilac...tried it on didn't like the way it fit me so I frogged it :wall:....note to self try on sweaters as you go...

I made my little girl a dress out of coral sunset...it is pretty too..

I have read though that the darker colors will run like crazy ...I didn't have any trouble with those 2 ...so you might want to do a swatch check first and make sure you won't have any problems with the color you choose...:thumbsup:
