How 'bout That Hat?

Yesterday, I mentioned that I had some yarn leftover from the Jelly Bean Blanket.

How about an Easter Egg Hat?

I like the striping better in these short rounds. The subtle shades in the yarn are allowed to pool and balance the more saturated hues. (Am I using the proper terms here? Color-theory people, please let me know!)

 

Looks great to me! Nice spring colors for sure!

Such a pretty colour combination.

What's weird is that I just finished a Colorspun baby sweater and hat and the colors didn't stripe at all. It was just beautifully variegated, and there would be no gauge where this yarn would stripe, as the color progression was very short...Is your colorspun a self-striping variety?

Pretty pretty.

i'm glad we got a close-up of the yarn. your blanket looks like solid stripes. could not see the white variances at all. quite lovely!

i used encore colorspun for a sweater once. tan, green and brown. it had small little pools, but nowhere near striping

That's going to be a nice set when you are done. Will you also do a little pair of booties, too? Too much cuteness.

I just love the way those colors come up. I'll definately use Encore Colorspun for my next baby blanket!

Great! Will it ever be spring?

Great baby knits! I like the spring colours. About the colour theory question, the DevX site (http://www.devx.com/projectcool/Article/19954/0/page/6)
has a good explanation of saturation etc. Since it looks like there's more of the colours in the hat, saturation is probably correct (IMO anyways :)).

you are on a roll... all this talk of Easter is making me crave a Cadbury creme egg.
