Ok, this wasn't what I was expecting either, but this time not in a good way...
Yes, that's beige and yellow and light blue and orangey-red and purple. All together.
I mean, ok, I like strong colour combinations as much as the next sock knitter, but this one fails spectactularly, IMHO, because the colours aren't bright enough to compete with each other. It's a mess of mid-range colours that are neither bright or muted.
