Using Bernat “Glow in the Dark” Acrylic(70%)/Polyester(30%) I wove a long, narrow scarf which could be used as a scarf or belt. Difficult to photograph but if it is saturated with day light, it does glow. What fun. While this scarf is created completely with this yarn, in future I plan to weave with but a bit of it for the fun of it after dark. Sadly, the colors are in the range I reserve mostly for children’s items.

    I really want to start weaving. Do you recommend a beginners loom for cheap? I have been researching and can’t figure it out.

    A great way to start weaving is with a rigid heddle loom. Ashford and Schatch both have well featured rigid heddle looms. They’re light weight and portable. I think a stand is well worth the purchase. If you don’t want to pay full retail, eBay and Spinners and Weavers Housekeeping Pages are great resources for gently used items. Also, be sure to contact your local spinning and weaving guild. Often they have used equipment for sale. A tri-loom is another option. But, you are somewhat limited by the shape.
