I'm disappointed in myself sure, but I'm more disappointed in the QA department that sent it out the door. I bought 3 balls, needed 2 and a bit for a scarf. The second ball I used had huge swathes with light blue, then giant chunks with none, leading to a half striped scarf. I didn't notice this problem until I started the third ball and noticed I was attaching it to a chunk with zero light blue and was unhappy with the transition, and then discovered several hours worth of knitting went into a product I'm now angry at. I'm now stuck hoping the recipient of this gift doesn't notice.
Exactly as pictured, fast delivery!
This yarn reads as (basically) navy blue, but has flecks of ivory to bright royal blue that make it an interesting "tweed". Soft, and easy to work with.
