KIT-KAL Swatch A

I've been saving a cone of scrumptuous 100% Alpaca Burgundy-Old Gold tweed to knit something special. The scale confirms there's two pounds of it. Woohoo. Enough to make the sweater.
Do you think tweed is too busy?

Here is what the swatch looks like. (Taken without the flash to show shadows)

Here is what the yarn looks like. The red should still be a bit deeper red.

I got gauge using 2 strands, U.S.#7 needles, knit flat. But the stitches are too open. So I'll be doing up another swatch with three strands.
