The sweater is knit in pale blush Berrocco Vintage yarn, and the jumper in Patons Classic Wool black and Berrocco Vintage magenta. The colors are the same as her striped socks.
This was the first time I had attempted stranded colorwork, and now I'm hooked! Gathering many books from the library for patterns and inspiration, among them:
Alice Starmore's "Charts for Color Knitting," and "Book of Fair Isle Knitting."
Arne & Carlos "55 Christmas Balls to Knit"
"Teach Yourself Visually Color Knitting."
The last book was not as helpful as I had hoped, but I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the Alice Starmore books!
