To reskein or not to reskein, that is the question….

To reskein or not to reskein, that is the question…

I find it fascinating how people “see” my yarn.  Some people find it easier to visualise the final effect on a knitted garment if the yarn is reskeined – as it mixes the colours up – and some prefer to see the colours in solid blocks.  Here are two identical skeins – one just as it came out of the dye pot, and one resekeined.  Which do you prefer?

    Prefer the solid blocks – then can visualise more easily how it looks knitted up i e a stripey effect or more ‘tweedy’

    I think it’s more helpful to see them reskeined. In this one it’s difficult to tell how much blue is in original but in the reskeined there seems to be a lot of blue
    Having said that, it’s interesting to see them as they come out of dye pot so please keep showing both versions!
