Washed Out

I started October's biscornu last month and was about an hour in when I realized that it was October and I wasn't stitching a Halloween biscornu. But then I realized that I don't have any Halloween themed patterns suitable and continued on. This is Papillon Creations' The Magic Carpet (it's available under "Free Charts" on the right). It was when I went back to get a link that I realized that the pattern is from Scheherazade, which I finished two years ago!

The Magic Carpet
28 ct Black Lugana
I'm using Dinky Dyes Aquamarine, Desert Sand, Cloudy Sky and DMC white. Unfortunately it's not just the flash washing the colours out. The colours do look that washed out in person. On the other hand, I'm already done one side!
