Knit Picks question - Swish Superwash
Does anyone have a color card for Swish Superwash from Knit Picks? I have a quick question about color...

I want to make a Moderne Baby Blanket from Mason-Dixon for a friend's new baby boy (due in Jan), and I'd like to use primary colors. I was thinking of using Swish Superwash - warm, yet machine washable, but I can't decide which colors to get to have the best primary colors.

Red - is the Red Pepper or Fired Brick the best true red?
Green - Jade or Dublin? Jade looks a bit blue-ish on my monitor, but Dublin looks a bit military uniform fatigue-ish...
Yellow - is Sunshine bright yellow, or pastel?
Blue - Dark Navy or Deep Ocean? I'm thinking Deep Ocean, but I'm not sure...

Thanks so much! I'll buy a color card for future reference when I buy the yarn, but I don't want to spend the shipping just for a $1.99 color card, you know?

I can't tell you about all of them but fired brick is a very deep red (think maroon). Jade is a deep green (kinda like a hunter green). Both are very nice.

The yellow is a bright screaming yellow. Nothing pastel about it. It is almost neon. The others, I don't know.
