Knitting Rescued from Obscurity

What happens when you take this box of yarn...
 
 
 
And add it to the pattern for this sweater?  
 I shortened the sweater in the picture. Can you see where I cut and taped it back together? I just like shorter sweaters!
 
 
You have an amazing thing happening!
 
Unfortunately, this piece of artwork has been sitting in storage for WAY too long. I have rescued it from obscurity and began to work on it again. I know I probably won't be wearing it this winter but I am interested in getting back into fair isle knitting action, inbetween the quilting time! :-D  Hopefully, I will not let go of reaching the finishing line this time.

Love the sweater, and the colors you chose just seem to glow! Have never tried Fair Isle...Scares the heck out of me!

@skinn62 and Maggie - thanks! That's why I need to finish it!

@Sandie - you can start with something small like a coaster or a 6x6" swatch. It's not scary after you get practicing!
