  • It all depends on the project. I enjoy selecting the color arrangement for some items but I also enjoy watching the color-play develop with self-striping yarn … such as using self-striping sock yarn in a knit triangular / wing-shape scarf, or alternating multiple rows of self-striping yarn with solids in a crocheted throw.

  • I like self stripping yarn. Fewer ends!

  • I like the freedom of creating my own "look" using many different colours and even different textures; but I also love the never ending "pattern" I get when using a varigated material. It’s always a surprise!
