This yarn was sitting so long in the to be untangled corner as I dyed 4 smalls balls together and it took me ages to untangle it.
Finally I had a motivation to untangle it.This is my favourite shawl, it is quite big and I had to frogg a few rows of the chart 1 twice, as it was a big as tent.
It is so feather light and just beautiful!
Amazing what 2 needles and some yarn can create.....

I asked for her favourite colours and I thought they might look interesting in a gradient. They are sage, brown and magenta.
I really hope she like it as the magenta is not a pinkish as I wanted it to be....

It is one of my colourways on a Silky Ombre Gradient on 5 Ply Ultiimo in the coral pink purple colourway! That's why I love dyeing these gradients.. they just make such stunning shawls /garments and knitting is never boring...;)

An interesting comparison between dyes,
1/2of the left rainbow gradient from peachy orange to the blue part was dyed with different dyes and the rainbow looks somehow brighter than the right rainbow gradient...
