I needed to do knitting that WASN'T colorwork (e.g. the top secret project), so I cast on with some Louet pearl sport weight that I had, and I'm doing a swatchie bit. Size 1 needles, a lot smaller than the recommended size, so, we'll see what I get. The color is called "hummingbird", and my picture dosen't do it justice. It's three strands, a turquiose, a dark plue, and a wine purple. Loverly!
