I am new to colorwork also and I was having trouble as well seeing other color options but your choices are beautiful

did your gauge come out exactly like hers? Also did you actually color your own chart or did you just memorize which colors matched which of hers?

10/21/2014 Flag

Yes, my gauge matched hers. I printed her color chart and in the margin I wrote which colors I was using for which symbols and that is making it easy for me to keep track.

Great colors, can't wait to see it finished. I have been having a lot of problems with color choice. I have a bag of very light colors and not sure if I will do the vest but, you have given me some ideas of what to do with my color choices, if I do decide to go for it. thank you Kathy
