Orange Day

This weekend was the time to dye weft for the second Orange Colored Sky shawl.  I'm a little bemused by the orange color choice.  It's probably my least favorite color (after lime green).  It's certainly not a color I would normally choose to wear.  Not since 8th grade and gym suits at Orange Grove Jr. High, anyway.  But there was something about that sky....

As usual, I rely on the color sample cards from the SOAR workshop with Sarah Lamb.  I'm always anxious about the results, but, also as usual, they were spot on:

The skein matches the color (lower left corner) perfectly! 
Thank you, Sarah!
