Purple Passion

I wove this shawl using a very chunky soft purple yarn, and a color change yarn for the warp. I wasn't sure if it would work. After I warped the loom, I was afraid that the thinner yarn wasn't sturdy enough to hold up, and that it would fray or break. Luckily, it didn't, because I just love the way this one looks.

I wish I had made it just a tad longer. I used a complete skein to warp the loom, and I could have used 2 skeins. I may go back and buy more and try this one again. I really like the way the thick yarn looks, and because it's so thick, it worked up really quickly.

It was fun!
