My camera cannot "see" this shade of blue, so I have borrowed The Girl's Panasonic, which at least can pick out the stitches.
You will have to take my word for it, that this is a very dark purplish blue with flashes of magenta in strong sunlight.
I have memorised the stitch pattern so this has turned out to be my "easy" knitting project, and the Portti Sukat Socks are in hibernation.
It is a very stretchy pattern, so size 34 is exactly that, unstretched. It feels enormous after Betty Jean!

The kit also comes in a naked / cranberry / moss colourway... but you know how I feel about orange!
It's very Orla Kiely, don't you think?
Oh - and owl-fans? Check out the SkeinQueen's owl-shaped needle gauges! Whoot!
I am trying really hard not to cast on another shawl. But you know how it is...! I have some gorgeous grey merino/silk mix in the stash which would make a fantastic Grey Gardens Shawl. I might save that project for the Easter holidays.
