Thanks Melladh!  I am especially fond of rainbows, I find myself automatically dying my roving and organizing my skeins into rainbow patterns.

I love a mix of colors, especially non-rainbows; so, the middle one is my favorite.

Thanks guys!! I usually like making larger skeins so I have more to work with.  But it is also dependant on how much fiber I dyed.  From top down the yardage is: 112, 170, 145, 91, 236.  Now I need to buy a bulky flyer and bobbins for my louet so I can make even larger skeins.  Amazingly I used to spin larger skiens on my drop spindle.  The 236 skein was done on a drop spindle, right now I can just about get 160 or so of a heavey worsted chunky weight on the wheel.
