December Daily Hexipuff - 2

Side A

Welcome to Harajuku, a loud, poppy mix of clashing bright pink and sky blue, muted with ochre and brown.
The colors in this don't so much blend as scream out for attention, creating a vibrant, busy whole.
I liked it in the skein, but knitted up, it didn't quite pop the way I'd wanted it to.
If I had a whole skein of this, I would probably want to stripe it with something else to tone it down and maybe make it a bit more harmonious.
It might also make for a very funky beanie that's sure to get you noticed.
I think I prefer side B for the hexipuff quilt, even though as I was knitting it, I thought I would prefer side A. Interesting.
