Thanks for those ideas. Sadly, I only have Peruvia in my stash (not enough, and black at that). I may still go with the slightly lighter Cashmerino Aran. Everybody needs a fuschia cabled wrap, right?

Love your pictures of the aran wrap - and the wrap needless to say.

The GGH/Rebecca Bel Air looks very like Jaeger Como which I got very very cheap. It pilled while I was actually knitting. Such a shame.
