I thought I'd give it a go as I had nothing to lose and here it is.

I used blue and green food colouring but the yellow in the green didn't take at all so it's come out blue and turquoise. It's slightly more turquoise than in the photo, more like a carribean sea.

I can't believe how easy it was. Now I've just got to knit it up.

That looks fab, I find you get some of the nicest colourways when things don't go to plan.
