It's hard to tell from the picture, but it's a really nice subtly variegated purple. I like variegated yarns, but I'm discovering that I don't like them with a lot of different colors blended in. I like tone on tone a lot better.
In quilting news, I had made a lot of progress quilting one of the baby quilts. But when I looked at the back side, I was really unhappy with the way it looked. So I slowly but surely picked it out. Actually there are a lot of bits that I just couldn't pick out the stitches were too close together. So tomorrow I'll see if I can find a better seam ripper. And then I'll pick a slightly less ambitious quilting pattern and give it another shot.
