i LOVE this!  but what are you going to make with it?  a hat would look kinda funny, as you would have nubbies sticking out all over your head like little rainbow-tumors... Tongue

This is a little late, but it was in a swap package that just arrived today.  And I can't wait until next week!

Rainbow!  Merino!


the yarn...  It's got two color repeats per approx. 3 oz skein.

dyeing:

I did 2/3 of an ounce fiber for the main colors and 1/3 oz for the in betweens.

carded:

I divided each in half, so that each skein was made from just one set of batts (if that makes sense?)

single ply:


Then it was navajo plied to keep the sequence.
Certainly the hardest yarn I've done... but, I'm pleased!  And my swap partner is too.  Cheesy  Here it is in use:

gorgeous! I HAVE to make something like that sometime...I loooove rainbows so much and they way you spun it (and your partner knitted it up), the colors change exactly how I imagine a rainbow yarn should. Cheesy lovely!
