Colour Blending

I've been spinning up these sea greens today.




















One hundred grams done and one hundred grams to go. It's a while since I've played with these multi-marle combinations. I used a similar yarn for my recent ruffled garter stitch scarf, but these colours are darker. I have to confess, I couldn't really remember which coloured tops I'd used, so I just had a stab at it. I'm hoping they will match well enough to make a hat to go with the scarf.

I don't know if it's my monitor or my brain, but I'm not seeing a hint of green in those colours. I know there are colours that some people will interpret as blue and some as green, but I normally fall on the green side. So now I'm confused.

Ummm, they're blue-greens, but the green's there. Admittedly they look more blue than the real thing on my monitor too. Hard to be objective when I've spent hours with the real thing:)

Yeah from the photos I thought it leaned more towards the teal side too. The pics can be misleading. Even if it did turn out to be too greenish for the black and blue, it is definitely in your commonly worn range.
One of these days I hope you surprise us and add some unexpected colour to your repertoire... red, orange, pink, green, yellow ...
