Getting Funky with Plarn!
Since we’re getting funky with yarn, we must not neglect the increasing popular eco-option. Whether you call it plarn or parn, a guild gallery or show-and-tell is now scarcely complete without items woven, knitted, crocheted or otherwise fashioned from recycled plastic bags. For a very nice tutorial on plarn manufacture, catch the video Plying Plarn (jazz soundtrack, very classy) or see how to spin plarn on a Navajo spindle.
If you’ve woven something interesting with plarn, post a picture to Handwoven Gallery, and strut your eco-stuff!
