Plans for Project Spectrum

So I am feeling very ambitious today. I'm very close to being done with my first item for project spectrum 2.0 it is a hat of my own devising, I will post pictures of it this weekend (hopefully finished) when I can take pictures during daylight hours. The brim is a sideways broken rib made with some deep blue handspun merino I bought a while ago from Violet. The cap/crown is dark charcoal gray from Lamb's Pride held together with two strands of white mohair laceweight from Colinette. I think I'm going to call it "New Moon" it really is lovely, I'm quite fond of it.

I also ordered yarn (arctic pool heather) for my first sweater, inspired by project spectrum.

Doing this has inspired me to knit one sweater for each color group. I know, crazy lady here! But i've been very hesitant to make sweaters and I think using P.S. will get me off my ass and committing to large projects. I also want to do at least one project using all three colors, like my hat with this group. I have other ideas floating in my head, but I think committing to two projects for each group is plenty for me.
