A Parrot in My Studio

I'm so excited about this new hand-painted yarn in "Parrot" colorway. It's a rayon metallic from Blue Heron Yarns. I now carry several different types of their handpainted skeins in my studio. 

 For this project, I matched the warp threads to create the color blocks. For the weft I used a fine orange bamboo thread. The drape of this fabric is amazing. It's light weight and drapey with just a touch of bling from the gold metallic in the threads.

Right now it's a very long scarf that's draped on my manniquin. Eventually, it may become a garment but for now, I just want to enjoy it in my studio.
