Yum, it looks like candy!
Yeah! That watermelon flavor!
the true color is more of a burgandy background, but I do love it.
Ok, so here is my swatch...Aegean Gloss with Shallows Shimmer. I copied Susan and knit in the round and practiced a steek. Holy Crap, it was scary cutting through those stitiches at first, but it ended up not being so bad. I'm very happy with my color combination and I like the accent every sixth row as in the pattern.

Tonight I will cast on for my sleeves, both at the same time using magic loop...let's see how that goes...LOL!

** glad to hear the practice steek went well!
Yippee! I just got my yarn today, same colors as you Susan (at least for this one). I'm to start a temp job tomorrow....so I hope to be swatching this weekend. I'm going to steek my swatch too....that was such a good idea :)

Can't wait to start swatching. I have a couple of variations that I want to try out, and hope to post a picture late this weekend :)

Happy Day,
Julie
Michelle,
Hi! I'm waiting, waiting, waiting for my yarn to arrive... I chose Agean Gloss Lace and Turquoise Splender Shimmer, similar to your color choice. I can't get to your flickr picture, though. Can you resubmit a photo? Thanks!
Here's my swatch again, Connie. I'm not sure why you couldn't see it, but if you still can't, let me know and I'll send it directly to you. You'll love the richness of the Aegean gloss...it is a GORGEOUS color.

Oh Yah, baby! That's an awesome combination! My turquoise splender will be a bit darker, so more subtle, but won't it be pretty? Hurry on FedEx!
Thanks for resubmitting your picture!
Connie
I couldn't see it either... thanks for posting it again... GORGEOUS! Fairly sparkles!
Very nice, Michelle
I didn't see the picture either, so I'm glad you uploaded it again. I have the Shallows Shimmer, and seeing this, I think I'm going to order the Agean Gloss to go with it.... It is GORGEOUS!
