Sample size in 6 years, not sure of the color, but it is a dark teal with almost black patches.

Kenjin means "sage" (セージ) in Japanese.  
I try to name most of my designs after family members, however "Sage", the name of my first son, is a very popular knitting pattern name!  At the time of knitting the sample, my daughter was flying out to Japan (I received the yarn the day she flew out!) and therefore a Japanese name seemed appropriate.
