I wanted to combine two ideas in this skein. One single was spun from bright, mostly primary, rainbow colors. The second single was spun from a black-to-pale grey ombre, which I had created with the help of my drum carder:
The intention was to create a light-to-dark contrast rainbow working across the entire skein.
Storm breaks. Can you see? Is it coming in or out? Rainbow peeks through. Fading in, or fading away? Beautiful, bright colours declare that though rain may fall and clouds may sail the sky, sun still shines.
Storms blow across the landscape of life. Few of us follow a smooth path. Change is a constant. Challenges rise up, and we grow so that we may get over them. But behind the storm follows the rainbow.
