Apricot Scrub

I'm working on the Center Motif Pullover from the 25th Anniversary Issue of Vogue Knitting. This is the first panel, about 75% complete. The yarn is Cascade Quattro in an apricot color. I bought it to crochet the Prepster Jacket from The Happy Hooker, but I couldn't keep the gauge right. (I guess I'm as loose of a crocheter as I am a knitter.) I managed to get gauge for this pullover and it's plenty of fun. I usually don't use this type of color, but I'm enjoying it. It reminds me of my St. Ives Apricot Scrub that I can't live without. I like the lighted color I chose better than the bright blue in the magazine. My husband couldn't tell that the blue sweater had cables at all.
