My daughter's teacher likes Mauve. Is that more of a pink or more of a purple? Thanks.

Years ago I heard it described as purple trying desperately to become pink.

I think it can go either way - looks purple when next to something pink, looks pink when next to a purple.

I always think of it as kind of a raspberry color. Or a rich, dark pink. (It's kind of difficult to describe colors, because the only thing we can compare it to is other colors!) Hope this helps!

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley
