Yes, I believe that's just about right... a lighter shade of aqua. Mike says no one would have ever known the difference. I told him that I would know, and wouldn't ever be able to look at the thing in good conscience if I didn't rip out the few wrong colored rows. The newly dyed, almost exactly matching yarn looks so much better, and was definitely worth the extra effort. Half of my guys are off fishing for the evening, so I'm going spend these few precious hours weaving in all those little ends and maybe even finish the border! Stay tuned for pictures tomorrow.
