Contrast yarn

Often when knitting something, I like to have a contrasting yarn for edging or to do a design in the knit pattern. We usually make the contrasting yarn from left over strands of solid colors (when two solid strands are plyed together, sometimes I have left over of one of the strands). J plyed this from the left over strand of white I had, plyed with a left over strand of fawn we had on hand:



Here it is hanging dry in our bathroom:

Almost all of my yarns are like that. They knit into beautiful products. A nice change from the solids. Yours is really nice.
