Tonight, while watching the finale of Lost (season 1, that is. I am way behind. holy, that show is intense. don't tell me whats going on in this season. not ready yet), I cast on and started a scarf.
The colors vary from orange to red to maroon and are very bright. Maybe not so bright as the photo, but close. Its like a signal flare.
I dyed the yarn a couple months ago. Unconvinced that true red can be had from drink mix, I left the partially-dyed yarn steaming for some time in a heavy mixture. Only parts of the skein actually touched the water, and that's where it got very red.
