Playing with color

A confession ... I'm not very good with color. I'm a "plain jane" knitter. If it's not a single color, I tend to choose 3 shades of blue to be safe.

With that being said, our Make it Your Way Diagonal Pillow cried for some color. I went to my stash and found a few cones of Yeoman Tibet. But what colors worked?

Many years ago, at a seminar, I remember the demonstrator (I think it was Michael Becker from Distinctive Knits) suggested the following method to choose colors. Wrap strands of yarn around a cone to get a 'feel' for how the knitting will look.
