A gift!

The scarf I finished a few days ago has been given as a gift. Generally, I don't knit with a specific recipient in mind. Instead, I knit the item, and as it progresses, an ideal person comes to mind.
This one was perfect for my boyfriend, T. Now, T asked for a "dragon blood coloured scarf". What colour is dragon blood?
Black. But not just any black. The blackest black that exists is still not as black as dragon blood. It is merely "off black".
Where to find yarn dyed with dragon blood? I searched Etsy with no luck. I figured black form Lion Brand would have to do.
He was quite happy with it, and didn't take it off the entire time I was there.

  1. Hmmmm, in every book I've read dragon's blood was green or red. Glad he liked it.
