Ok, so I wanted to make something devoted to my obsession of the Beatles psychedelic years because it's really inspired everything I do creatively (The first song on a musical instrument I learnt how to play was lucy in the sky)

and I'm bent on making the Pi shawl from Best of Knitters Shawls and Scarves.

I don't care how much this yarn obscurs the lace pattern (me knowing it's a daimond lace that goes with the theme is good enough for me) and I'm experienced in lace so barely being able to see my stitches with the busy colors doesn't bug me. I want to keep the total price under $30, but I'll take ANY suggestions.

I royally SUCK at dyeing stuff on my own, so that's no help

Thanks so much in advanced, I know a lot of you HATE any varigated lace yarn from the start

Handpaintedyarn.com! I was looking over there today, and a 800yd skein is about $7-8 and looks really lovely Smiley You might also check in their "odds and ends" section for more out-there colors.

Go check out Cabin Cove.  Dave's a really nice guy and he's VERY fond of bright colors.  If you asked him for it, I'll bet he'd dye it up for you.  There's nothing there right now that will suit your needs but, like I said, he's fond of bright colors.  His prices are totally reasonable.  Here's one of his dyeing posts.  There's a lot more in his blog with bright colors too.

Hi, I'm new here. Smiley

For Cabin Cove, try http://www.cabincovemercantile.com/ instead. The other links didn't work for me. They were missing the ":".

I feel like I nerd for actually liking stuff about Pi ... everyone else I know hates anything to do with the subject. Ever see the movie Pi? I loved that...
Anyway, I googled it and that's such a pretty shawl ... looks tough, but it'll be rewarding when you finish! I vote for the Stained Glass yarn ... Don't forget to post pictures for us when you finish!
