Fuschia cotton angora in a top-down raglan

I'm currently knitting myself a top-down raglan sweater out of bright pink Debbie Bliss cotton angora, based on the Bad Penny pattern by Stefanie Japel. However, I think I'll make the sleeves at least three-quarters length and perhaps deepen the ribbing around the bottom. I'm not sure if the fuschia pink will suit me (the pack of 10 balls was bought at great discount at John Lewis a while back), but the cotton angora is lovely to work with, if a bit sheddy (it makes Chris sneeze). So far I'm only as far as the bust and I need to take it off the needles and try it on again, but I've got high hopes that all will be well.
