Finished!

All blocked and ready to go out on the town. Er, I meant ready to be given to a very nice, prim Kindergarten teacher.



The Silky Wool relaxed a lot after blocking. It became even silkier and softer, and stretched and bent with ease, which helped me get the curve out of the starting repeat. It's surprisingly light and airy, and looks wonderful.

Yes, please, what color? My LYS carries Silky Wool, but I have not seen that one. Is the color in real life as mauvey as the photo?

It's done up in Silky Wool color #10, which is a sort of washed denim blue color with lots of variations through the yarn. It's really lovely in person, but hard to photograph well.

This picture captures the color really well: http://www.uncommonthreads-pa.com/Silky%20Wool.htm

#10 is also called woad on some websites.

Oh.. sigh. I already have some Silky Wool in woad. (And in the white, and in the pink.) It is very pretty, and "denim" is a perfect description. I was hoping there was a new mauve color out in Silky Wool. Too bad--I really, really like that yarn!
Thanks for clearing that up, Kathy.

There - hopefully changed the picture color so it looks more blue and less mauve :-P
