Weekend (& Yarn Help Needed)

This sums it up:


Last night we went to the Durham Fair - always fun. Today we ran errands and planted bulbs for the spring. And now, resting. I should try to get a little jump on lesson plans, but I really just want to knit!!

And since this is most likely the last really warm (shorts) weekend, here's a shot of my successful sunflower plant (I had to replant them twice due to bunnies)


And on to the help - I am planning to make Flora (KnityFall'05) for my brother's girlfriend for Christmas. I'm looking at yarns at jimmybeanswool.com. I have found the Rowan wool cotton in Rich&Berry. I'm looking at the Rowan Kidsilk Haze (instead of Crystal Palace Kid Merino, because I could buy them all at once) - but which color? Blushes? Splendor? Liquer? CandyGirl? Please help me decide!

Hi, I was jjust passing by! If you have time, go see my internet marketing secret related site. It's nothing special but you might still find something interesting.

Keep up the good work!!

Love your sunflower! One of my neighbors had sunflowers this year with morning glory vines growing up them - it was so pretty!

Mmm, Wool Cotton, my fave!

All the KSH colors are so nice - it really depends on what look you're going for. Do you want a color match, a tonal contrast, or something a bit kickier?

Or you could use Kidsilk Spray and get subtle variegation. It may have been the light (or my poor eyesight), but I could barely see the changes in the skeins I've looked at - I imagine they'd be lovely when knitted up.
