I'm starting to be suspicious that my sweater does not contain 50,000 stitches. I'm about to finish the first hank of yarn (8 required for my size) and I'm only totaling just over 4000 stitches.
Yarn color today is a much more accurate representation of the true color ( on my monitor anyway). The color name is Achiote which prompted a little Internet research.
Per Wikipedia, achiote is a small shrub or tree native to the tropical region of the American continent. Best known as the source of the natural pigment annatto produced from the fruit and used as coloring for foods such as cheeses, butter, and salad oil. The achiote flower is pink, the fruits are described as brown or reddish-brown and the seeds are orange-red. I would describe this color as a purplish red.
Stitch total to date = 4147.
