Why are there so many songs about rainbows?

On Saturday I went around to Jen's and dyed some sock yarn and fibre, using acid dyes, rather than the food colouring I usually use. I overdyed some boring beige Tofutsies, and am very happy with the result.
I also dyed some white alpaca I was gifted: can you believe that these were dyed using the same colour?
Then I painted all the left over dyes onto some plain sock wool I bought for this very purpose.

This is the front of the skein:
Turned over it looks like this:

And the answer to the question I led off with is: there aren't, but I've had Kermit singing that song in my head since Saturday, and now you do too.
