Rainbow Yarn Scarf

A while ago I bought some rainbow merino from Zauberzeug on Etsy. It has sparkle and glows under blacklight. Cool!

I spun it up into 3 singles and then it sat in the cupboard waiting for something to ply it with. I finally decided on a black silk cap from Fibre Fusion.

Here it is on my homemade yarn swift.

I ran out of black, so plied the last single with a blue-faced Leicester single I found in my stash. The lighter colour gives it a completely different feel.

I knitted that into a basic scarf – here it is blocked out on a towel.

I think the black/rainbow yarn could make good armbands for goths who like the nightlife – it would be cool to see it glow under the blacklight at a night club.
After blocking I stitched the scarf together because I love infinity scarves.
