I believe that when working with a number of strands of yarn held together… you can use ANY combination of colours at all… and still come out with a decent looking bag. I really do.
But I haven't tested this theory as yet.
Now is my chance!
Little Miss Four has requested that I make her a bag. She chose her three colours (all by herself) and was so pleased with her decision. Alas… they look really crappy together… so this is my chance to test out the theory.
Her favourite yarn is an awful pink and yellow wool. She has been wanting me to make her something from this wool for such a long time... but every time I start using it, the colours work up atrociously, and I abandon it. It was my first (and last) attempt at food colour dying!
The others choices are a green fleck and a brown fleck yarn. I would certainly NEVER choose to put these three colours together… so this will be interesting!
