I’m still not sure if I like the color. One minute it looks like it’s rusted, and the next it looks like I tried for Christmas colors and failed miserably. It actually looks prettier in the picture then it does in real life! It’s not my personal preference, but I don’t think it’s awful. Now I just have to figure out what to do with it. Maybe I can use it to try out a pattern or something.
