    Cerulean and Sunshine- reminds me of Pride and Prejudice (the movie version with Keira Knightly). The blue is so calming, and the gold reminds me of early summer evening.

    Seagreen and iris. Reminds me of a Tiffany window.

  17. Caroline says:

  23. Gay F. says:

    I think the Pea Green and Carnation would be very fresh looking together. I thought I had enough knitting books, until I saw the impressive list that is pre-loaded on the Kindle Fire, and realized that I had none of those! Now I KNOW I don't have enough knitting books….
