Comments: I wonder how much different this would look in three colours that were much closer in colour and/or tone?  Its a little scary like this, but I think it could be fun in, say, several tones of grey or brown.  I love the green in this swatch - I bought it as part of a Dr. Who Scarf I made for my brother last Christmas (yes, one of those crazy 12-foot ones!), and I fell in love with this one and the Pumpkin Spice Heather.  Actually, those two together might work well in this kind of a pattern... remember how good they looked in this swatch?  Now I just have to find a 3rd colour to put in with them.  :)
