A couple of months ago I came across a beautiful skein of handspun merino at my local yarn shop. The color is Pastel Jungle and I discovered it’s spun by a fellow Minnesotan – you can check out her blog at Knitting My Way Home. Although I had no specific project in mind, I just couldn’t resist adding it to my yarn stash. Every now and then I’d take it out and look at it, and consider my options. I wanted to find a way to highlight the all of the lovely colors. Today I ran across my 2-inch square pin-loom and decided to put the two together.
I’m still not sure what I will use over 100 2-inch woven squares for, but sometimes it’s fun to just let a project emerge as you go along. Maybe I’ll combine them with some crochet motifs. Or perhaps connect them using Irish Crochet or Romanian Point Lace techniques. They may end up as a scarf or a baby blanket or table mat. Maybe I’ll line them with some Kraft-Tex fabric paper and make a purse. What would you do with them?
