Thanks for all the fun comments and little messages. It makes me feel good about my knitting and spinning.
Now I am on a quest for rainbow sock yarn.
The real rainbow colors; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, either indigo & violet, or purple. I keep coming up with variations of the rainbow colors or just primary colors. I was seriously looking at the Lorna's laces rainbow 601 until every card swatch I saw was a different rainbow. Here, here, Here. None of them even look similar. I am afraid of getting a wimpy version of the rainbow. So if you know who does a true rainbow yarn. Could you please let me know. I want to make a pair of socks for my somebody. We have a anniversary in June during pride week.
If I am unable to find true rainbow yarn I will just have to make stripy socks the hard way.
I swatched for Martha. I found a XXL men's cashmere sweater a couple weeks ago and I frogged it. It is a 2ply so I am using the yarn double stranded. It is super soft and a very noble blue. I feel a little dumb though last night as I was swatching I used two different sized needles. A 1 and a 2 needless to say this morning when I picked it up I could think of no reason why the other 2 was in a basket across the room. Light went on and I fixed it. Now all I have to do is finish the strawberry socks and I can start on her.
