I got a package of the paprika Alpaca Fina to make a Voyager stole for myself. I have decided I like orange and I`m going to wear orange. The paprika color is killer beautiful, it glows with color variations.

I ordered the wine Rowan Scottish Aran Tweed and it is a beautiful rich color, the monitor on my computer didn`t come close to showing how pretty it is, so I`m very happy! I also got a bag of the Rivera green Sula and it`s even prettier than I thought it would be. I`ve had an outstanding color week with my yarn order. :)

Now I just have to be able to knit some of these things up, still hard to concentrate enough to knit but I hope to gain some focus with each day. It would be really good if I could also get smarter. We`ll see how that one goes. ;)

That`s excellent!

I don`t think you need to be any smarter, you are a pretty smart kid to begin with! You have my sympathy on the concentration, though. I have the attention span of a goldfish half the time myself. :-)

I`d love ot know what you have planned for this terrific stuff!!!

Wow, what beautiful colors! Hope your concentration improves. Mine is deteriorating each day so much that I end the day with next to nothing done!! All good wishes to you for improved health! Hugs,

Yay, Benne, glad you got your goodies and the colors are much to your liking!

Could you give a description of the Rivera green Sula? Is it like a kelly green, and how saturated (lightness/darkness) in color is it? The other two Sula greens I think have too much yellow in them to be good with my skin tone...but I hadn`t considered the Rivera until your post!

Sandra, I thought the other two greens were too yellow for me too. This is a dark green, the tone is like the Higland Silk Calypso color in tone, very pretty, more blue-green than yellow-green. I like it, bets might also have a good idea about how it would do for you.

:-), yes, I do know what you mean, Bets, and also I am in no way as fast a knitter as you are! I think I`m going to concentrate on enjoying my current WIP and give my closet space a break, though I have to admit next week`s Ca`d`Oro is calling to me strongly!
