Orange You Glad.......

.....I finally posted my picture! Orange is my secret favorite color. I've liked it for years and have recently decided to tell people and knit wearables in this bold color. I love the vibrant and juicy saturation Ralph achieved. The pattern he sent with the yarn is The Square Cake, which scores points for me since it is knit in the round. I avoid sewing as much as possible. That fabric you see there is dyed silk. It is very shimmery so it looks lighter. He also included grapefruit Euclan, cable needles, and yummy chocolates. Hooray for a project I can take to knit nite!
Thanks Ralph
