Cables might be overkill for a yarn that beautiful...I think I'm in love.

What incredible colors! Great pictures too... I'm rarely up early enough to take pictures by sunrise, and yours came out so well I might just have to set my alarm next week! :) Happy YPF!

Gorgeous. Make something lacey so you can still see the perfect spinning and intensity of the colors. Something that is light enough to be worn indoors so you can show it off.

that is absolutely STUNNING. after i get the hang of spinning this plain wool, i will dye it. but then i simply must try some coloured roving.

I love yarn photographed in bright sunlight! Gosh, that yarn is gorgeous. It is all the colors of the sunsets of my youth in Arizona. "Purple and Red and On Fire".

WOW! Maybe it's this brand new flatscreen LCD monitor, but that yarn just absolutely leaps off my screen and wants to be mine! ;)

Absolutely gorgeous work as always

Make a beret-style hat. Simple stitches for complex beautiful yarn.

That is so beautiful - I adore it. It is just like the sunset colours we get here at this time of year. Truly magnificient - you really do have a talent.

I agree with Elizabeth, such a stunning yarn needs a simplicity of stitch and design so its glow is not overwhelmed with fussiness.

I can't wait to see what it becomes.

I'm with Elizabeth and Peri, make something that really shows off the beauty of the yarn. The colours are awesome and should not be distracted from by a complicated patten.

Beautiful! I vote for scarf and warmers.
