I think the changes that you made really made a difference to the look. While the mauve does stand out more, it does look good with the other shades of pink. And the gold is a good compliment to the green. Before you redo the whole thing, perhaps you can try just one square of the lavendar and see how that would look against the other colors.
Thanks for your thoughts...I appreciate another opinion. However, I may not even have to redo a square...holding up the skeins to the other colors may work faster
