I've been knitting up this hood since the weekend--making it up as I go along and seeing how far the yarn will go. It's the Rainbow dyed skein from our dyeing day in the Spinning Certificate. It's always fun with these random dyed yarns to see how the colours will knit up. In this case the lengths of each colour are relatively short. I love watching the colours appear on my needles stitch by stitch. These colours remind me of finger painting: simple primaries with just a bit of mixing. Actually I'm happy with how much of the blue, red and yellow are coming through compared to the more muddy colours.
