This was the most accurate picture of the "purple" yarn. I snapped this one out on the back deck on Sunday as we had some sunshine for a bit. This is STILL showing more pink than it is in person, but, hey...what's a girl to do? Unfortunately there is not enough in it to complete Missy's slippers......so I'll be dyeing the white skein that I finished too. It's really too bad as this one goes well with the first skein.
