Dregs It Is

The Pantone Color of the Year 2015 is actually called "Marsala," but what the style overlords mean is not a festive bottle, but the red-brown dregs, the residue, the leavings.  And Marsala? As in Veal Marsala? Veal as in meat in captivity?

Appetizing or not, I'll take it, because it is the first color in years that I can actually wear without looking like an escapee from either the clown factory (I'm looking at you Radiant Orchid) or the ICU (that would be you, Emerald).

I just happen to have a sweater's worth of one of my favorite yarns: Quince & Co. Lark. And it is  the Malbec colorway.  Wine is wine, right? I think I can drink, um, I mean knit, to that.
