I like that color better, but then I prefer purple to pink. Ordering on-line without a color card is so difficult. You never know quite what you will get. I'm very impressed with The Fibre Co. yarns. I bought three different lots from them at MDSW and was satisfied with all. The people are quite nice, and their home-dyed approach is appealing.


They do look pretty together. I think you definitely have an outfit in the making!


beautiful choice! maybe it will look a little pinker once you get it knit into fabric; i find that color is often elusive and changeable that way.


That really is a beautiful combination. I'll look forward to the finished outfit. I find myself ordering more online as well. I try to support my LYS, but like you, I find that they never seem to have what I want or they have it but not in the quantity. Add in a long drive and gas where it is and mail order is becoming more common. I like ordering from Elann. Their warehouse is actually quite near me and I've had my order in as little as one day. Great sales too.

Yum,that yarn looks delicious. And a perfect match for your fabric. I checked out the other Canopy Sport colors at the Soho Purl website too and was greatly impressed. All of the shades look very rich.


That's going to be a beautiful outfit!! That fabric is very similar to mine.

On the LYS thing, I rarely shop at mine either, unless I need something right away that I know they carry. The problem with mine are that they don't carry a lot of the things I want and then they try to talk me into substituting with something else. It's OK to substitute yarns, but it has to fit in with *my* vision of how I want to go about it, not just to buy a yarn they happen to have in stock. That really is my pet peeve.


Beautiful combo! I can't wait to see this shawl progress - it's going to be georgeous in that pink.
