Scary wallpaper-crochet

Update on crocheted wallpaper project:
OH NOOO! This is getting really scary! The colors just don’t translate well from the wall to cotton yarn. It looked so good when the yarn wasn’t crocheted – but now it’s hideous.
(it’s even worse in this blue-tint Swedish winter non-proper-daylight image)
These wool yarns looks much better! Going with this yarn/color-sample to the local yarn store tomorrow and see if they have something in cotton in these colors.
I give this project one more chance – if it failes – it’s ”in-the-cupboard-under-some-other-scaryprojectstuff” and forget about it.
