okay.. so tickle me pink, I'm still learning!... is there someone who can explain to me what a "self striping yarn" is???
It brings to mind a variety of things..some not being the yarn/knitting type of picture Hah!. this term was used recently in an advertisement I saw for some yarn that has a variable colorway that slowly blends one color into another..
thanks to all you pros out there in advance..and 'scuse me 'cause my novice slip is showing!('')
Basically, the yarn is dyed in a way that will create stripes as you knit. The width of the stripes depends on the amount of stitches and the needle size, but it will stripe with whatever you do. If you go to my project album, I have some socks made in a self-striping yarn. I think they are on the last page.
Berroco has a really nice self striping yarn called Foliage. It knits up on big needles and has wonderful colorways. Have made several scarfs and am now making a matching sweater for my oldest daughter. karen
