from No Sheep for You:

Designer Barbara Gregory is a genius with color. She’s taken the mesmerizing yarn shop wall of more than 100 Super 10 Cotton colors (Tahki Cotton Classic in the United States) and distilled it into the most elegant of muted sonatas using simple stripes and occasional rows of two-color short--float stranded knitting.
