I have started working my way through test knitting all of the patterns I came up with for the Traditional Colorwork Ornaments.  Last night I cast on the Midge and Flea to knit up in 3 colors.  The color combination was inspired by another project (Sipula Bag in warm tones) in which I just loved how the colors worked together.  Knit Picks Palette in Marsala, Sweet Potato and Brindle Heather.  Working in 3 colors is a tad bit of a tangled mess, but worth the result.  I love that Sweet Potato but it is a very bright color and needs a few dark tones around it to calm it down. 

Also, stay tuned quilters,  I have started working on this year's entry to the Alliance for American Quilts Contest, Home is Where the Quilt Is and should have most of it finished by the end of the long weekend and should have a few photos to share.
