In my frustration with both the Dublin Bay sock and the Tahki pullover, I cast on for the Hourglass pullover from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I'm using a dark peacock blue color of Berroco Pleasure I scored at the Webs tent sale in the spring. It is buttery soft and great to work with so far! I'm anticipating a fairly quick knit as it's mostly stockinette! I want to do some contrasting color trim (just 1 row) and have some light blue Patons Classic Merino that I want to use. Different yarn, different texture, but I think for one row of trim it won't matter that much, but I think it'll make a great color punch!
