The entire time I wound these wee balls of yarn for Aeque by Hilary Smith Callis I told myself in a stern voice in my head that I had to finish the entrelac hat and get a dent in the evil stocking before I cast on. I was so tough on myself. Almost to the point of unburying the evil stocking from its locked coffin, but not quite. As I lined the little balls up on the table I couldn’t decide which order they should go in. The yarn is Loopy Hues in nerves of steel. I’m pretty sure I’ve got them in the correct order but I’m not positive about the two on the left. Is the purple gray (the second one) darker than the dark gray one (the first one)? I want to knit these in a gradient kind of way. I suppose if I don’t know which one to start with it will keep me from casting on. Which one do you think is the darkest one?
