Hey, I'm working on something new now, Something made of Spiral Squares! I know the spiral technique with 3 colors, so it wasn't hard to change it to make it two colors, and then just make the circle into a square by adding corners,,, and here we are! I am considering making a poncho out of it, because I have one that I made already, and I wear it all the time, and it's feeling overused...  But now other ideas are starting to creep in, ... and I'm wondering what YOU think it could be made into! As you may or may not be able to see, it's made with TLC's Amore, so it'll be really soft. 

The thing I make can be reversable.. The bottom row of squares is showing the wrong side... I almost like that better!

Side note: Has anyone else used this yarn? It says it is machine washable, but then Lion Brand Homespun says it's machine washable, too, so...... Hard to know if I can beleive it... it seems sturdy... 

Well anyway, comments appreciated! What should I make, and will it fall apart in the washer?

those would look really cool as a blanket or scarf or purse.  very cool.
i made a hat from that yarn from my cousin and she never said anything about it falling apart...

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

I don't know how wide the squares are, but if they were the right size, they might make a cool belt (and even if they were very wide, it could be like a wide sash obi or corset-style belt).  The other thing that crossed my mind when I saw them (and they are way cool, by the way!) was maybe a vest.  I know that Groovy Crochet site had these halter tops and tank tops and vests and things made up of granny squares, and really any of those patterns could work with these squares substituted in.

I actually think it would look cute as a jacket.  Cheesy

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

Those are super cool. I'd make a bag.
I'm going to try and wash a swatch of Amore, because I want to start a sweater with that yarn, so if nobody else knows I'll know in a few days.
Have you had trouble with homespun? I made a sweater out of that last year (I hate it, but wear it because it took a while) and have washed it and dried it several times and no problems.

those are really cool.  i like the bag idea, but what about a set of pillows or a bolster?

"But why don't you scream now?" Alice asked, holding her hands ready to put over her ears again.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"
