Accidental orange

This is a skein of yarn I spun this spring. I was teaching myself to dye--I thought I was making red roving but wasn't quite sure about the dye amounts. I somehow imagined if I didn't have enough that it would turn out pink and I could just knit up something for my then-5 year old niece who is deep into the pink stage. Instead I got this.

I kind of like it, actually, since I'm obsessed with fall and earthy colors. It's definitely best used as an accent color, though!
