Triangle Squares Cushion - The Yarns

The yarns for the Triangle Squares Cushion by Kaffe Fassett are Rowan Cotton Glace and Rowan Purelife Revive.  Both are a DK weight.  The design is the same on both sides of the cushion.  How tempting it is to do something totally different on the reverse.  I'm looking forward to knitting with Revive for the first time.

The yarns are, from left to right -

Row 1 (top) - Triangle Squares Cushion, Purelife Revive Yarns: 461 Pumice, 462 Basalt, 463 Pink Granite, 465 Rock

Row 2 - Purelife Revive Yarns:  467 Ironstone, 469 Flint, 470 Firestone, 472 Loam, 473 Grit

Row 3 - Cotton Glace Yarns:  445 Blood Orange, 724 Bubbles, 727 Black, 747 Candy Floss, 829 Twilight

Row 4 (bottom) - Cotton Glace Yarns:  832 Persimmon, 833 Ochre, 837 Baked Red, 838 Umber, 841 Garnet

Yarn Qualities:
Rowan Purelife Revive:  36% Silk, 36% Cotton, 28% Rayon; 137 yards/50 grams
Rowan Cotton Glace:  100% Cotton; 125 yards/50 grams

I'm looking forward to the weekend, but I doubt I'll be taking this with me to get the oil changed in my car.  It's not a very portable project!
