Calico Cat Yarn

For quite a while I've wanted some calico cat yarn to knit either one of Fuzzy Mitten's cats or the Japanese Good Fortune Cat by Justine Turner available on Ravelry.  I finally had my chance when a local yarn shop sponsored a class on dyeing wool yarn.  Here is the resulting yarn compared to my tortoiseshell cat Molly.

I was attempting to match the color to a calico cat I lost a few years ago.  I think on the whole it came out pretty well, but I should have dulled the color.  It'll probably knit up all right as a toy.
