American Girl Doll Sweater continued...

First, I want to thank you for taking the time to give me suggestions for the yarn I should use to replace Matchmaker in my new American Girl Doll Sweater Pattern. It was wonderful to read all your comments. Most of you favored Palette, a KnitPicks yarn.

The first thing I did this morning was to order a skein of KnitPicks Palette in color Raspberry Heather.

Then I went to one of our yarn stores in Boston, A good Yarn to look for what I thought would also be a great choice Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift.

I got a couple skeins in the lovely Moorgrass colorway. (I have something for heathers at the moment!)

I think both the Knitpicks Palette and the Jamieson's Spindrift will work beautifully.

And since I was just too excited about the new pattern, I swatched with the Jamieson's.

This is going to be beautiful, don't you think?

Oooh, I love the color of the Jamieson's Sprindrift!

I thought KP Palette was a good choice too, because it's easily available and affordable. I love all heathered yarns too! This colorway looks gorgeous. I wish I had a doll to knit for. I'd feel silly doing so just for the heck of it though. :o)

The Jamieson's is gorgeous. I've just started knitting for my niece's AG doll and can hardly wait to see your pattern for the sweater. It is just too cute.
