some yarn... good or bad?

I got some Artyarns Supermerino in the mail and thought it would be a bit brighter than it actually is... I can't capture the true color of the yarn. The picture makes the yarn look brighter than it is because of the flash. I'm afraid the yarn is too dull. Up close it looks good, because you can see a bit of purple and navy and the yellow, but from a far the colors kind of blend together. I was thinking of knitting the multidirectional scarf pattern with this yarn... What do you guys think? Should it be a go or not? I was planning on giving this to a friend so that's why I'm being a bit more cautious.

I say go for it. I love yellow with blues and purples.

Well, there's only one way to know... swatch (the dreaded word). The colors look great in the picture in any case.

i wonder if the colors look great in the picture because of the light from the flash. if you shine a light on the yarn, it looks really good, but i'm not sure how it looks when the light it isn't shining on it.
