This is a 400-yard skein of 80% superwash merino, 20% nylon fingering weight sock yarn. Its firm twist makes it a delight to knit (little splitting) and results in a substantial, springy product.

I made a 24-foot skein of yarn, and divided it in half. Each color segment is therefore 12 feet long. Knit as 64-stitch sock at 8 stitches per inch, stripes will be about 1/2 inch wide. The light green and the grape purple colors will alternate.

The third photo shows the yarn waiting to be reskeined. The white thread is what I use to tie the yarn at about 3-foot intervals to keep it tidy while dyeing. You may see a little light-dark shade variation within each color, which is common for hand-dyed yarns. Your final product will therefore have a little depth and not look "flat."

I already had this color combination in mind when I came across the photo of the vegetables (not included). Nature has the right idea!
