These wools arn't available to buy on twc yet are they?

I'm wondering if the faberge, would go with a charcoal colour for the rainbow dress, like the gorgeous one on ravelry.

I have just done an online enquiry with them and they're replied that the new colours should be up next week. I have little faith (and an lot of annoyance!) as that is the same reply Kate posted two weeks ago!

I'm finding it very frustrating as I have an e-voucher for them so have to wait even though Mum is going in there in less than an hour!

Faberge is pretty nice, but none of them are really floating my boat. Gala would be interesting knitted up, but reminds me of scary clowns. :oops:

You can order these via the phone or email, could you use an e-voucher with an order placed via email?

Just been in contact with them some more and arranged for Mum to be able to use it in store \:D/ Looking forward to have pretty yarns in my hand by this evening :D Though a bit worried that I'll be putting Mum in charge of deciding what's pretty :?

Ocean and Mixed Berry look really nice, I don't like the look of Gala though - too bright!!

Flamingo looks like a new colour, I have just sent them an email to ask how it compares to the now deleted Peony Rose, and whether it matches the pink in Watermelon and Mixed Berries.
