Surprisingly, this picture is a pretty close representation of the color. Reds generally don't seem to photograph well on my camera. I'm really taken with the pooling of this yarn. I like that some flames are mostly a single color and that they are spread through out.
Now that I have the pattern memorized, this is probably the quickest knit I've ever done. It is also the project I am most tactile with. The yarn is so soft! And the texture of the shawl is so inviting to just squish and fondle the yarn in my hands.
