Fibre arts

I love knitting, so I tend to think of yarn as knitting material. However, I also love to see the other uses for the yummy materials from the shop.
This is what clever weaver Barb made as a "test" from one ball of Sirdar Crofter DK, shade 54, Fairisle. She was impressed by the yardage.


I am intrigued by the different effects Barb has achieved by using this self patterning yarn in weaving.
Barb is making a blanket, as her test worked out so well. I am keen to see how the other squares turn out. So far they are all different, but blend together nicely.
Self patterning yarn is extremely cool.
