My Final Thought on Looped Yarn

Well…. my final thought on looped yarn actually turns out to be not so final. I started out this project intrigued. Then the intrigue turned into a little bit of shame as I understood how the hard working women of Papua New Guinea use this little known art form as a way of life (and […]

A Twist on ‘Twisting Yarn’!

I still can’t give up. I really don’t know why… I haven’t found any sort of application for the looped yarn (or twisted yarn) that I really am fond of, except for maybe the obvious lace trim, but I am still intrigued by the whole idea of the craft. That, and it really sorta bugs […]

I’m More than a Little Surprised…

Wow! This whole looping string thing worked out much better than I could have ever expected when I started this little endeavour!
