I've wound my yarn into cakes. I'm slow starting out, as I have a couple of things I need to finish first. I'll cast on tonight. In the meantime, I made a small color change. This is my main yarn:
The color is Malayan Orchid and if you can't see well it has pinks, deep pinks, reds, browns, and natural in it. I have one skein of natural and I was thinking to ad a little brown, too. I have a partial skein of Chocolate, which is a mix of browns, some of which are found in the Malayan Orchid, some which are not.
They look nice together. But I also found a skein of Mountain Colors Rosehip. The yarn is the same.
I feel like the red keeps it warm and rosy, and since I have a full skein of the red I won't need to add the natural, which, since I intend this to be a spring jacket, will help with the filth factor.
So that's what I'm doing. I'm going with the Rosehip and the Malayan Orchid. I haven't even looked at the math yet. I think I should swatch.
