Knitting Rainbows

Rainbows are created by the refraction and dispersion of the sun’s light by rain or other water droplets in the atmosphere.

That’s the official scientific explanation for one of the beauties of nature. No matter how many times I see a rainbow, I have to stop and look at each one.

Recently, I have started knitting rainbows, as well as observing them:

As well as knitted rainbows, I am also partial to just threading them onto wire and hanging them from my earlobes:

creating pendants with rainbow beads:

or just drooling over the beads au naturel!
