Got my yarn

So, my Calmer arrived a couple days ago! Very pretty shade. Discontinued, but I got at a fair enough price. If anyone else is looking for some calmer, check out Destash, there's someone on there with 10 balls of a royal purple color for only $90! She lowered her price right after I bought mine, darn. Ah well, I really like this color, so I'm happy. I hope Fifi is really as fast a knit as all of you guys make it seem. I am getting a late start.

I also was wondering if anyone is starting or making the RCC. I was thinking of using a bamboo tape yarn, but then saw that someone else is using the Hana Silk. There's a gorgeous shade of burnt orange that I'd love to try out, but wasn't sure if I really wanted to spend the extra dough. Let me know!

I've been knitting up RCC, and for the most part I'm having a great time with it. I have been confused about some of the directions, and there are mistakes with charts ( matching the letter with the name of the chart). I've started Chart H, and have run into problems with it. I'm going to rip out the first 4 rows and start from the begining of chart H again. I know it sounds like I'm whinning but believe it or not I am having a good time with it!
BTW-I'm using Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon. It's probably not the best choice I could have made (IMHO) but it was in my stash and I can't afford the yarn the pattern calls for.
