bright golden and took some extensive baths in dye. It also had a tiny mistake I just couldn't leave alone.
In the end it came out lovely. The yarn is 100% silk (Louisa Harding's "Mulberry", which is gorgeous, but normally far too pricey for me at $15/50 gram ball). It has a great hand and it knits up really easily. It isn't quite as forgiving as a more elastic yarn and I do prefer having some wool in the blend. However, working with a non-elastic yarn is not enough to stop me any longer, and everything still came out really even and the shawl blocked wonderfully.
