This is my 400 yard skein. i'm really pleased with how it turned out. I should have enough for a pair of socks. I will keep the picture to enjoy because I tried dying my skein and accidently used the wrong dye (the one for cotton instead of wool). The yellow and rose turned out beautiful but the blue was a streaky purple/black/red that was really ugly. I then tried to overdye with lapis and it didn't take. I then tried a plum and it took the dye. I'll have a picture of it after I have knitted my first sock. Hopefully, it will be pretty enough to post.
