Suggestions wanted as to which colour to use on the new rib basket.

I am now close to the point at which I must use another colour on the rib basket I am making. I am attempting to use up the ends of skeins of previously dyed cane, and will not have enough of the walnut dyed 1/4" cane to finish the basket. So, which would you suggest I use to finish it? The red here is a little wider at 3/8" and would be a nice contrast.

This 1/2" undyed would be more subtle.

The similarly sized grey-blue would also work in a subdued manner.

While the vibrant emerald green would add distinction to the basket.

This is the basket at its current status. I have added another seven ribs to each segment. There are now two dozen ribs in all. The basket-makers adage says you can never have too many ribs!

So, what do you blog followers suggest as the best colour to use to finish this basket?

  1. I've always liked the baskets you make with the bluey grey colour. I think those sell well for you too? My initial reaction was green, but I noticed that you already have a green/melon version in your store.

    What about bluey grey and green? :P
