The photos sure are not accurate for color. This is with a flash, so it's too light, the last photo was too dark. It's a material that is most like a white something that has been mixed in with the color loads enough that it's now no longer white at all.
This is three pattern pages wide and a full page tall. I am just a few strands past that first full skein of dmc floss. It's still fun and relaxing so far, but there's a long ways to go yet.
