A Good Yarn

February 16, 2012

Spotted recently: colored yarn as a quick fix for a monochromatic palette at home.

After spending too much/not enough time on some of our favorite blogs, like Le Dans La and Loppelilla, we began noticing a pattern of bright yarn, artfully used to tie up items and as decorative accents. This left us wondering: Is colored yarn the next washi tape?
