When good designs go bad

Don't know about you but this one gives me a headache. Reminds me of the 60's (should probably be florescent green and orange). If you stare at it long enough, it moves...

I was trying for a nice over-all Fair Isle pattern - hey, it's got oxo's right?

This one's going in the recycle bin - sanity returned after the headache went away and something better (I think) is in the works.

By the way, if you want this design, you're welcome to it. I promise not to yell if you can come up with something beautiful. Maybe I'm just not looking at it right.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm knitting (wait for it....) sleeves! Doesn't matter which sweater I choose to work on - it'll be sleeves....

Cynthia- Did you swatch it?

You could call it the "Austin Powers" Fair Isle!

Hey, it does move! Freaky...

Well, it's a first attempt, which is great in itself.
