Paul, that's an amazing color. I'm kinda jealous, actually. Mine seems all boring and I realize I do a lot of things in grey. I wonder if this might be indicative of something...

I usually gravitate toward darker colors, but I chose to override my natural tendency for using dark colors and got this nice shade of blue (there was a really pretty dark green Cascade Eco+ that I almost got). I'm really glad that I chose a lighter color.
I'm really enjoying knitting this pattern. It's also been good to have something low impact to work on while I'm recovering from a mild case of pneumonia.

Get well soon.
