Rainbow Sock Choices

I’m getting ready for Sarah at mildlygranola‘s Rainbow sock KAL next month by fishing around in my stash for skeins that will do. I don’t have any self-striping rainbow, but I do have some rainbow variegated sock yarns.

The top skein is Radioactive Rainbow from Knitted Wit. I have seen it knitted up, and it comes out kind of jittery, but with a rainbow vibe. The bottom skein is one from one of my favorite dyers – she closed up shop a couple years ago, and I have been reluctant to knit with my skeins from her. But realistically, I have a ton of her yarn and do need to start doing something with it. I suspect this will come out mostly blue with rainbow streaks throughout.

Any opinions? I genuinely cannot decide!

      1. I’m having a baking day today but have undyed yarn and plenty of acid dyes so next week I will have a go at dyeing my first self stripe attempt in rainbow colours. No socks on the needles at the moment so that will be good to use.

  1. I love both of those yarns. Both will give you socks that “pop”! If I had to choose, I would probably pick the one on the bottom. Can’t wait to see the finished product. 🙂

  2. I do the same thing with special yarn that I can’t get any more:) I think you should use the special yarn. Make it a celebration what with it being a KAL:)
    You all are making me want to dig out some rainbow yarn and join in. I might. I’m sure there is rainbow yarn in my stash:) It will put me over my 3 project limit but 4 is doable particularly where the Arachne won’t be needed until mid September:)

  3. I vote for Radioactive Rainbow using the pattern Rainbow Connection Socks by Kay LItton (The Crazy Sock Lady), you would need a mini skein of black yarn. It’s an amazingly beautiful pattern.
