I got about 216 yards.  It’s probably worsted weight, but I never really know until I start knitting it up.

This yarn is a bit on the, um, strong side of the yarn-softness spectrum.  I have no idea what I’m going to make.  Maybe it will go into a colorwork yoke or become a slouchy hat or fabulous legwarmers.

What have you knit with gradient yarns?  Or what do you want to make with gradient yarns?
