Helpp! http://www.yarn.com/product/webs-kni...king-hand-art/ Should I choose Trinidad (the red/green/yellow-ish) or Atlantic (the blue/purple/red-ish)? TIA!

OOOOHHH! Those are very pretty. From a personal stand point I REALLY like the Trinidad. I don't have the foggiest idea how it will knit up, but those colors scream at me! (In a good way of course!) What will you be knitting?

Probably a pair of socks....hopefully for me this time!! I love Trinidad too! On the other hand, I love them both, and that's why the thread it here.

I agree with Marilyn... I'd get both... but if I HAD to chose I think I'd get Atlantic.

I tend to like purples and blues so I would say Atlantic.

Both are pretty but I love the combination of Atlantic with the red, purple and blue together the most It's kinda like the red and blue hues are melding into this gorgeous purple and back out into its primary colors again. Gorgeous!

If you can only buy one you have a very difficult choice. Are the socks for you or a gift? Either way look at your/ their favorite clothes. We all have one sweater, shirt, etc that we wear over and over. Then ask yourself which yarn would look best with those items.
