Intriguing wool!

Whilst shopping in town I found this wool that I have seen before but never really looked closely. It has a weaving aspect to it - so as a textile degree student was naturally curious. Ordinarily it is used for making scarves, but I have been thinking what else it could be used for - weaving book marks, hair bands, sewing together when stretched out into a fabric to crochet into or bead/couch other material onto.

Whilst thinking about this I have been knitting a scarf with it and can see lots of possibilties.

 Open weave.....ooh could weave lots of different things through....

Didn't take long to reach a reasonable length. Very quick to pick up for a beginner knitter, I suggest!
