Knitting is my procrastination tool

{October 3, 2007}   Need opinions!

I have a Jacquard Acid Dye starter kit from Knitpicks. The colors are Vermillion, Fire Red, Sky Blue, Sapphire Blue, Yellow Sun, and Jet Black. See this page for a better idea of how they work at full strength.

My question for you is, what color do you think would work best for an adult sized Trellis?

I’m leaning toward a lighter color, and I realize that some colors require mixing of what I have. Unfortunately, dye is not using red, blue & yellow or green (light uses green) as primary colors, but cyan, magenta, yellow (like some printers). See this and that for why mixing yellow & blue would get mud.

Thanks for any input! 🙂
