Purple Autumn Rose

I'm just about to embark on my largest fairisle project and thought that it was about time that I started to blog about it. I fell in love with Autumn Rose the first time I saw it (as I know many other knitters did). I held off buying the yarn until Christmas came round. Now I have the yarn and no excuse not to start.

I wanted to do this in another colourway to the original pattern as I prefer purples to oranges. Moggle had already put together some alternative colours that I liked and so I asked her if I could have a copy of what she had chosen. The majority of these colours are in the swatch shown below, although I am still not quite happy with the way that the colours are distributed, so I an going to reswatch so that there is more balance to the pattern.
