Roy G Biv

I've started a Roy G Biv crocheted blanket, or the rainbow blanket!
Now I am very curious if you do or do not know what Roy G Biv is! I'm not sure when I learned this, if it was at school or if my dad taught me, I just know I know it now. Roy G Biv is just an easy mnemonic way to remember the 7 colors in a rainbow/visible spectrum. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet.

I started with red of course.

I ended in violet. Now I think I'll reverse the colors and continue!

Here it is so far!
Crafts + Learning = LOVE (to me)
I bet you didn't know Epcot is my favorite Disney park, wanna know why, because you get to learn while at a theme park! Sometimes I try crafts with my little cousins that have a little learning in them and they don't even know it! Tricky tricky!

Take Skittles, what's their catch phrase, Taste the Rainbow? Well Skittles are NOT a complete rainbow, they are missing Indigo - whompwhomp! Plus I had to buy the Crazy Core Skittles to get these 6 colors. I ate more Skittles today then I have in 15 years, I could barf a rainbow right now lol sorry that's gross, but true. Too much sugar -blah!
Tell me where you learned Roy G Biv in the comments please! I'm curious!
More color fun -CMYK. I could do this all day!

Thank you for the sweet thoughts to my mom!
She's a tough cookie and hopefully she'll be better in no time!

Honestly, I think I learned Roy G Biv from Screech (Dustin Diamond) on Saved By the Bell. I remember there was an episode that he was teaching Zack using mnemonics. He also taught the order of the planets in that episode.

Bahaha Shanny - I remember the planet one - My Very Educated Mother......... but now is Pluto still a planet? lol I loved Saved by the Bell with all my heart!

Roy G Biv is def something i learned growing up! I think it was in grade school art class or something. Around the same time I learned the state song, the planets song and the sentence for helping us kiddies learn how to spell Arithmetic. (A Rat In Tommy's House May Eat Tommy's Icecream!)

the first time I found out about Roy G biv was in 5th grade. I had a hard plastic headband and it was a rainbow. My art teacher was talking about color and picked me to show the headband. She asked the class if we knew what the colors were also called. Of course we had no clue.
