A Summer Rainbow

Remember this post? Where I decided I was going to spin up a rainbow of leftover merino fibre given to me by a friend and ex-needlefelter?

What began as  Tour de Fleece project ended in a burst of rainbow loveliness! Even as singles this yarn was stunning:

I’m delighted with the end result. 204g of a lovely heavy DK/lightweight Aran (about 10wpi).

Plying!!

I was so excited to finish this off, in fact, that I left instructions for the husband to hang it outside to dry while I had the kids out for the day. This is what I cam home to. Points for creativity, although I do wonder what the neighbours made of this!

The only problem now is finding the right pattern to knit it up!
