Pronounced as one letter,
And written with three,
Two letters there are,
And two only in me.
I'm double, I'm single,
I'm black, blue, and gray,
I'm read from both ends,
And the same either way.
What am I?
I've never answered riddles before, but I will take a wild guess at this one. Is the answer "eye"?
Correct answer Terrijayne.
Did you work out each line, or just take a flying guess like I often do?
Anyway it is Terrijayne's turn.
As Terrijayne hasn't returned here; I'll ask another that I borrowed from Christopher Paolini's new book Brisingr.
'I am colored red and blue and yellow and every other hue of the rainbow. I am long and short, thick and thin, and I often rest coiled up. I can eat a hundred sheep in a row and still be hungry. What am I?'
That's close Rho: the wool part is correct and I like your answer better that the book's. I'll wait a day or two to see if anyone can come up with a better one before giving the answer.
How about knitting needles?
No, something made of wool. The more I think about it, the more I like the skein of wool better than the book answer, which I'll give tomorrow and then we can discuss which is best.
Well a scarf may work, but the answer was supposed to be a woolen rug.
