Ok, so I'm knitting these celtic spiral socks, get all the way to the heel on the first sock, and realize I gonna need more yarn. So I go to theknitter.com to reorder a skein of natural, and a skein of black. I check the yarn lables for the color number and look at the webpage to find them.
My skein of black says #8334, but the website says black is #8304. Dark Navy Blue is #8334.
Inside, under incandescent lights, it's definitely black!! I take my "black" skein outside to look at it under bright natural sunlight.
Outside, it's blue. Dark Navy Blue.
Crap. I *KNOW* I ordered black. She sent me blue by mistake.
Oh well, at least it works. I'm not going to make a big deal about it, because it's obviously an honest mistake, and well, natural and blue look just fine together. I actually think it's kinda funny. Yesterday I would have sworn it was black, now when I look at it, it's obviously blue. How weird.
