Winter can start to get you down for many reasons, but it's really the lack of color that gets to me. So, I turned to my spinning wheel this weekend and spun out this self striping rainbow yarn. The rainbow ply is from plant dyed domestic wool that I purchased through Mamajude on Etsy and the oatmeal ply is from some left over Shetland wool I purchased locally. It turned out to be a healthy 230 yard skein in a lightweight DK thickness. I was thinking of selling it just as a skein, but I wanted to knit those colors and absorb their beauty while watching the simple magic as one colored changed into another. I settled on knitting a very simple garter stitch bordered doll sized blanket and I very pleased with the result. It is now for sale in my Etsy Shop Simply Playing and it's twin is currently on my needles. I tried spinning another yarn on my wheel this morning, but it wasn't quite cutting it like this one so I simply stopped. I guess you can never get enough of rainbows.
