I've subbed out two colors of my original ideas, one being Filigree, which was actually my fave color from this entire shipment. The other three colors are Magnolia Leaf, Copper Penny and Glazed Pecan. I chose a bright skein, one that has more green than gold, and I LOVE IT. Photos just do not do Merino Light justice. The colors are just so spectacular and really seem to pop on this one-ply yarn.
I'll start my new scarf tonight, and once that's finished I'll be using the remaining yarn to knit my mitts. And don't think I haven't considered starting my project right now- it's taking quite a lot of restraint not to, but I specifically got up in the wee hours of the morning to get work done before James wakes, and I'm doing my best to keep on task.... though my resolve is weakening as I type this. Argh.
