It looks fantastic! I never would have thought of putting those two yarns together. I need to open my eyes more. 🙂

Wow.. she’s lookin’ lovely so far and just like everyone else, it would never have occurred to me that these colors would sync up so well. Beautimous!

What splendid colours! I’m too chicken when it comes to colours but that combination is stunning! I’ll have to force myself to use brighter colours this year. Thanks for the inspiration!
