Yes, @Fiona M , although I am a few days behind.  June has been very boring so far - all yellow (2 shades).  I'll post a pic at the weekend when it will be half finished.

Spoke too soon.  It's suddenly turned orange.  May be red tomorrow.

Not as much as it should.  Too hot to knit.   :D

Dilemma - I don't like the orange or the red.   :(  I knew I didn't before I started but I already had those yarns so thought I would save a few pennies.

Should I:-
a) carry on 
b) undo to the end of April and replace the red and orange
C) undo to the end of June and replace the red?

Option C.
Will you replace it with
a. a 'nicer' red
b. a stronger orange
c. a deeper orange
d. something else?

The yellow / orange is fine but to my eyes the 'red' looks a bit pink.  If it was mine I would replace the red.
Life's too short for ironing.

I really like it. I think once it's done you'll like it too. Probably just too close to it now.

I like it as it is, because the colours represent the temperatures experienced and will be bordered either side by the cooler colours of winter/spring & autumn/winter.
Agree with Francesca, I think you’ll like it when it’s finished.
