I thought my first attempts at color choices were too "blendy", so I frogged (gnashing my teeth the whole time) back to the braid and added red-orange to the green. TOO bright: in real life it is REALLY orangy.
Then I added a row of blue, thinking it would off-set the red-orange some.
I'm dumping this, and probably even the black background. The "black" is too precious to waste, and I really don't want to knit something I don't like.
Off to a picnic, then will come back to look at the stash and see what else I might do. I don't think I have enough of that bright blue anyway. Good that I am stepping away from this for a few hours.
It's definitely a learning experience with how the colors sit on top of each other.
