The fact that these all represent Project Spectrum "Cyan/Aqua" tell me that I'm definitely on the right track -- experimenting, learning, growing! The squares above are knit from the test skeins below.
The bunch on the right was later overdyed with the following result, which was used to knit the last bunch of squares shown above.
Hm. I must have Scotland on my mind.
I'm looking forward to the last of the PS dyeing so I can move on to the big project with all the little knitted squares. The intention is a blanket and I can't wait to get started!
