I sure wish I took a pic of this yarn before I knit it. The yarn is a two ply and was spun from scraps of wool roving and locks.  I love it!  I have knit this hat, Calorimetry and the DROPS Headband (panta) in the last week and a half.  My DH doesn't believe his hat is next!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

 Shocked Scraps?! It's beautiful! Smiley  I would have guessed it came from a continuous handydyed, self-striping yarn! Is it symmetrical? (is the other earflap the same?)

The scraps were roving and locks spun into a two ply yarn.  I love how one of the colors became more prominent to give it the self striping effect.  I was hoping that would happen when spinning it but wasn't sure it would work.

And no, its not symmetrical, just colorful.  The other earflap is yellows, blues and greens.
