LAVENDER
PASTEL LAVENDER SPECIAL DK:
Parma Violet, Stone, Cream, Duck Egg, Pistachio, Stone, Parchment, Parma Violet, Parma Violet, Lavender.

I'm sure you will also create lots more variation using this selection of colours
As part 2 of the Carousel was released yesterday, hope you are all still enjoying the CAL?

i decided to make a complete pastel Carousel along side you all, along with the new Extra Special version.....life got in the way yesterday afternoon and evening but i did manage to complete the 16 pastel bands needed for a pastel Carousel. 17 colours altogether  

I've not joined them together yet I'm using the parchment to join but these are the 17 colours and they will work with all 3 of the pastel centres shown above.
