my life with books, fibre, spinning, knitting, teaching and working for a public libary

I don't remember much about Kindergarten, apart from not being able to learn to tie my shoes, but I think that is where my grasp, such as it is, of colour theory started. Mixing paints. All colours mixed make an ugly brown, that's very true.
But somebody lied to me, red and white do not always make pink.
This is a blend of Fuchsia dyed roving, white wool, pink bamboo silk and a single of pink bamboo silk.
It should BE pink, it isn't.
An optimist at my guild commented hopefully that it might knit up more pink.
