I have a pack of five tablets for Easter egg dyeing. (Pink, purple, blue, green, yellow, I think.) I'd like a repeating set of stripes, in rainbow-order with these colors, and intermediate colors that are half and half of adjacent colors. So there will be ten colors. This is another dye scheme for which simply untwisting the hank won't do. (Could maybe get one-row stripes in two colors that way.) So I set out ten cylindrical objects. I doubled up the yarn and wound it in a ball a few nights ago. I unwound that ball today, winding the yarn six times around each jar (five for the wider object), going around the circle of jars. Made it around four and a half times. Bundled it up with acrylic yarn (won't take up the dye, so it will be easy to distinguish and cut away later).
And here are a couple photos from my two most recent expeditions:
