Yarn Gamble

I took a risk on this one and ordered some yarn based on a small picture and a written description. Due to different cameras and monitors I’ve had a few surprises after ordering things online. Well, this one’s a winner! For any of you looking for a color very similar to the one shown on the model in the magazine this looks pretty close to me (much more vibrant in person than the picture shows!). Now on to the swatching
