Here is what I've been working on -
Pattern: Tailspin by Josh Ryks (First drawback to posting from the phone - how do I make a hotlink to the Ravelry page?) Here is the full url: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tailspin
This is what the finished project should look like, different colors of course.
Yarn: I am using my Yakety Yak base in almost all of the colors I dye on that base, plus undyed (the light gray) and brown. There was much agonizing and consulting of knitting friends, but here is the color order I decided on. Value-wise, the undyed gray and red are the lightest and darkest, so I am using those as my main colors. I figured that out by taking a black and white photo and arranging the colors from light to dark. The purple, teal, and green are so close that it was a bit of a judgement call.
