oooh!  I love the colour of that, and I also kind of like how the singles are "energized" and give a different texture to the knitted fabric.  The colour totally reminds me of the pictures of the pacific via Mexico that my parents sent me!

If none of this is making sense, I'm blaming it on my insomnia and to sum up:  Beeeyooteeful!
