This is what I love to hear: Sara purchased some HipKnits silk and discovered that one skein had a bit of a darker color. Being the smart cookie that Sara is, she saved the darker skein for the diamond-y, jewel-y trim around the neck, cuffs and hem. Sara says she would make another Sahara, but this time, not with the shirt-tail hem. I like how that slightly darker purple makes it sparkle.
