I think I would have to say that the yarn color is actually closer to what it looks like in the lower/cat photo ~ it's kind of a wine/plum color with some bits of butter yellow mixed in.
(I'm writing this with a new app on my phone called "BlogGo." The layout (font) seems to be a little quirky so far...)
When I decided I was done for the evening, Willow the cat thought he would test the edibility of the needle. :)
I'm happy with the way my first knitting project is coming along so far!
