Swatching Progress

I have been swatching and digging around in my vast knitting library. I am using Jo Sharp DK. I found a small "border" chart in an old Dale book that I like so I started on it. I like my colors.
The dark color is "Beetle" which is very brown/green. The light color is Avocado and the splash of bright is Ruby. I was thinking about lice but decided I want the solid brown for the body. I am still exploring motifs for the yoke part. I am pleased to have found this yarn in my stash!

Very, very nice colors. Your sweater will look great. I'm at the point of casting on to swatch, myself. I think I have a few good ideas, but you never know until you see it knit up.

I like the colors as well. The third color will make a very nice accent.
