Last year, I wove a scarf utilizing the variegated effects of Bamboo Pop. You can find that post and all of my warping and weaving photos here. For my second go at this scarf, I decided to try one of our tonal multis in Bamboo Pop. I chose 205 Brilliant Blues 120 Graphite for the warp. … Continue reading Color Pooling, Ocean Style
It’s Free Pattern Friday! Today, the North Window Stole in Universe. It’s a simple formula: sparkly yarn crochet = gorgeous.

I made dishcloths with Cotton Supreme Batik and after heavy, HEAVY use for the last 6 months or so, this yarn has not faded one bit! Amazing! Still has the same bright color it had when brand new and very soft. Highly recommend this yarn.
I nervously casted on with Uptown Worsted (first time for a sweater and first experience with this yarn). The price was right for possibly screwing up the sweater or not liking the yarn. I AM SO GLAD I CHOSE THIS YARN. It is exactly what I was looking for - soft, perfect amount of sheen, knits like a dream with just enough slick feeling and steam blocks perfectly.
Really love working with Cotton Supreme Splash. Extremely soft and the colors are beautiful. Currently making a sweater for a baby. Stitch definitions is great too!
