Not my most successful colorwork project; I think the colors turned out kind of boring. I tried to go with the original idea of choosing two main colors, a lighter and darker version of each (blue and purple in my case). Despite my wide selection of Wollmeise Pure colors, I had a hard time finding a combination of four that worked so that the dark version of one color works with the light version of the other, and that all four together would appear balanced. The light purple (Meilenstein) barely stands out from the grey (Maus jung) background, and the dark blue (Moses) appears more teal than I would have expected. It's weird how the context has so much effect on how a color looks. Wolke is a great color that works well with many; who would have known I'd like light blue so much. Well, I'm going to take this project as a lesson on colorwork. And I do like how the tubular cast-on and ribbing turned out.
