Love the self striping and variable scarf yarns.

Knowing that we are living in a world where most people assume that yarn is just for crochet and knitting, I get a ridiculous thrill when I carry home those same yarns and produce, not stripes or lumps of one color, but a synthesis of shades that varies from square to square, sometimes with lovely matching overtones, sometimes in wild contrast.

Having said that, the weavies below are made with a decorative yarn that includes patches of woven color. I used three layers of the Rosario Multi and then wove with the light teal cotton. These are

some experimental weavies that I am planning to make into a purse. I saw a lovely purse that was edged in leather with a tapestry insert that I would like to imitate in weavies. My plan is to weave the body out of the above squares, then probably use a suede-like light brown as edging.  I will add a drawing and later, a picture of the purse.  Right now I am just enjoying making and joining the weavies.

  1. That is a nice combination of yarns to make a fancy scarf using these little looms. I can't wait to own a copy of the new book coming out on PIN Weaving.
