The next color grouping isn’t a column. It’s a top and jacket or cardigan in the fashion color (not neutral). Nix-Rice calls it a twinset, but in her class she emphasizes that it doesn’t have to be a literal twinset.

The fashion color for my Fall 2016 SWAP is Dusty Cedar. On the left, jersey for another Sunshine top. On the right, the tweed — rose and dark taupe — for the Iconic Tweed Jacket. They don’t really match enough to be a literal twinset, but they look very good together, and the bouclé tweed is also a good near-match with the dark taupe.

The twinset called for in the Nix-Rice system could also in this case be the top and the Delish Cardigan, which is about 40% completed by now. See the fabric and the yarn together below on the right. The yarn is Elann’s Victorian Rose colorway, and a very good match for the Dusty Cedar fabric.

With my change in plans from a SWAP PSD this weekend to a family fun time, I will probably get to do more knitting than sewing this weekend, so Delish may be the winner.
