Best Red EVER

So I go to my LYS Purlescence Yarns and they immediately toss this hank of loveliness at me knowing that I was going to scream, "This is it!" They know me too well. I have 4 hanks now. This version of red is fondly known at the store as "Lisa Red."

In my humble opinion, this is the best blue/red sock yarn ever! I am always in search of the best red colored yarn and this is definitely one of them. Now if I can just find the perfect red lipstick, then I would be set! I drug my mother all over San Francisco one afternoon on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick, the hunt is still on!

Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug Colorway: Vatican Pie

I tried to show was a rich blue/red this is and the photos really does not do it justice. I did a little tweaking and still could not get it just right, it is much more blue/red than it looks here.

I also just got the new sock book, More Sensational Knitted Socks. I am looking forward to using this yarn with one of those patterns!
