Talk about confusing. I had the bright (?) idea of knitting up some yarn to give me some knit yardage to play with for the SWAP, but of course the colours are all DRAB. Olive green, some beige, lots of grey - OK grey I can use - some navy but not enough for a top. Bright pink cotton, & maybe enough white for a simple top. I've twisted different colours together to see what they look like & they still look bleh to me. I'm going to have to experiment with tuck & slip stitches to see how they look. The problem stems from having a little stash left over from when I knit my Dad jumpers, he looked good in drab colours, & the stuff that came with the freecycled knitting machines I collected. Obviously colours that no one else wants either! Oh & I can't wear acrylic which is what the remainder of the yarn is. Better go & set up a machine I suppose & see if it will work. That'll be the next problem.
