When I was little I was curtain that if I ran fast enough I would get to the rainbow just in time to touch it. That was a lot of running in excitement not even thinking that a rainbow is unreachable. And instead of thinking I failed when I did not reach it - I thought that a new day would give me new exciting running for a rainbow.
I had so much fun knitting my rainbow scarf that it was a little sad when I finished it. The colors are just wonderful and adding some stripes to it did the trick.
I had some leftovers and knitted some mittens I felted in the washer. The yarn, Kauni, is excellent to felt. The mittens are thick and warm.
I felted them two times in the washer. They looked really awful before felting and I never thought they would be so nice.
I love knitting with this yarn. But it has a lot of knots and broken threads. But that is ok - I spit splice it so I do not get those ends to weave in. The yarn is also very dirty and has that oil in it. But nothing a little washing can not handle. I will definitely use the yarn again and again.
