This ball took hours to wind by hand, because my skein tangled really badly in my attempts!

The colours are fairly close, but this is a webcam, so it's not perfect.

Here's a bit of it knit up. the stripes are nice and sharp, about 3-4 rows each, which will make some awesome socks.

I dubb this colourway "Care Bear Stare" due to the hues reminding me of Hugs, Tugs and Gran. I will post the finished socks someday!
Tomorrow, I'm going to try dying some more Classic Wool with lime, tropical punch, ice blue raspberry and changing cherry....we shall see! Self-striping yarn is addictive!
And now for the cuteness factor of my blog: Mahoot not wanting to be held (which is always). But see how wonderfully he matches my hair? And his eyes are just a goregeous bronzey gold. Oh to have pretty eyes like my kitty! They just now inspired me to find just the right yarn to match his eyes....for what, I don't know. I loved the cloche missamerika made with moonlight mohair (scroll down to see a close up of the yarn), so I might check out that gold color.
