Today I am playing with a new yarn on an Ashford Knitters Loom: Yoga Yarn is a cotton yarn designed with a bit of stretch so it's easier to weave with on a rigid heddle loom.

I love it!  

Also, my first time playing with colour and weave patterns.  Which is different patterns of light and dark yarn (light light, dark, dark.  Light dark light dark.  That kind of thing.)

You made it in Seahawk colors!



I totally don't do football, but living down here, everyone is about the Seahawks since they won, and people have "blue Friday"s where they all dress in Seahawk colors.

You might just have a huge market for such a blanket just south of your boarder. People seem to buy most anything that's blue and bright green, at least when the Seahawks are doing well...

(My favorite day to shop is when the Seahawks are playing. The stores are so nice and empty and parking is so easy to find. Truly lovely!)

Some yarn I spun a while ago.  I wrote down somewhere the yardage but can't find it.  Too lazy to re-measure.
