Gradients in Full

With the exception of Knitalong kits, I try to stay away from having dyed-to-order listings in my Etsy shop. However, I keep finding myself in conversations with knitters about gradient kits where each color is a 100 gram skein. In a response to what seems to be a theme, today I wrote up a way for knitters to get exactly the color they want in precisely the yarn base they want. I put up my top 20 colors in the minimal space provided by Etsy for photos, but you're always free to choose "other" in the color menu and leave me a note with the one you'd prefer. I'm sure you've heard, but there's a Pinterest board just for the Gradients. Here's a quick visual of the 20 colors: I have some ideas of what full sized kits could be used for as well! Check out Martina Behm's Viajante or Nuvem, both would lend themselves especially well to sock-weight full size gradients. Here's a sweater pattern I've been meaning to make for myself: Carina Spencer's Sugar Maple. I know it's very old school, but Kate Gilbert's Clapotis is still a free Knitty pattern and would be great for the Worsted kits. If you have other suggestions, feel free to post them in my Ravelry thread dedicated to Gradient Kit ideas.
