Recycled Sari Silk Yarn Patterns and my new stitch markers

My new stitch markers listed last week! Fun to make and my 3 yr old loves them for the colors. He wants me to make lots of them for him to play with but he understands I need to sell these and that they aren't for playing.

Also I have found some interesting knitting and crochet patterns and ideas using recycled sari silk yarn. Some are just ideas. And of course this yarn can be used for a multitude of other things like weaving, embellishment, gift wrapping. A customer of mine planned to use it to wrap around her wedding invitations. So here are a few ideas that I have, some I came across on the internet and some suggested by readers of my blog and I'm going to keep adding to this list.

For the Home:
Silk Throw
Table Mats
Cushion Covers

Accessories and wearables:

And hey it's my birthday tomorrow so maybe a giveaway or a sale or both. I don't know haven't decided yet.

Edited to add a sari silk bag pattern.

New Recycled Sari Silk Yarn Luxury and March Giveaway Winner!

Here's my new listing of newly arrive Recycled Sari Silk Yarn Luxury, that is even softer and luxurious than my Recycled Sari Silk Yarn. I had a hard time picking a name for it. In fact I'm not sure I like the name Luxury at all. Hey, that's an idea for the April giveaway! Here's a picture.


I'm pretty proud of this picture! Ooh I love this yarn! I'm afraid I won't be able to part with it if someone buys it. 

Ok, now to get down to business. Thank you all for the great comments on the giveaway blog post. Thanks to them I've incorporated more info on texture and color in my new yarn listings. Now let's see who won the March giveaway. 22 entries including tweets and comments on other blog posts of mine.

And the winner is #3 Rain! Rain please get in touch with me with your mailing address.

And the rest of you do let me know what you think of this new yarn!
