Remember the rainbow realization

Yes, I realize I'm an idiot. I know how primary colors make secondary colors and so forth, but I never connected it to the order of the rainbow before. So anyhow, I just got new yarn in (from www.wool2dye4.com) and decided to make some rainbow yarn to celebrate.

I used red, blue, and yellow, and put large patches of it, then smooshed it together so they would blend in the middle. And this is what I got.
There is one section that isn't in the right order. I was so focused on getting the right number of color repeats, I messed up the order. DOH And one more, a close up!

And now, I'm off for a sushi dinner and a DVD night- I think we are going to get a season of Tiny Toons :) (This is what passes as date night. I wanted to go see Julie and Julia, but do you know how expensive movies are? CRAZY)

The other news for the day- Kevin now owns a kayak. He spent a full paycheck, but he got a free t-shirt! (I'm secretly jealous I don't have one...)

are you jealous that you don't have a free t-shirt or a really expensive kayak?

The yarn is very pretty...can't wait to see what you make!

I'm jealous of the kayak. I have plenty of t-shirts :)

Your yarn is beautiful! Post a photo of Kevin and the kayak sometime so we can see if it looks like it's worth a full paycheck and the medical bills he will no doubt incur while rolling it in white water :D
