New knitting stitch markers

Here are my new knitting stitch markers. They are snag free and fit upto size 11. They are so fun to make and are so much better than the drab orange and green plastic ones don't you think. When I'm knitting with my handmade stitch markers, I pause occasionally to look at them and admire how pretty my knitting looks because of them.


Recycled Sari Silk Yarn Coin Purse and a sale!

Recycled Sari Silk yarn is so fun to work with. I just love the feel of it while knitting. So here's what I made with it a few days ago. A little draw string coin purse that I plan to embellish. I used about 40g of recycled sari silk yarn. That is less than half a skein to make a purse measuring 5" long and 4.25" wide at it's widest part. I will soon post the free pattern.



Now about the sale. Prices of my Worsted Weight Duke Silk yarn have been reduced by 20%, to make room for new colors and yarns coming soon! 

This pretty treasury featured my yellow banana fiber yarn.

Some sewing today!

Been away from my blog for a while now. First my little one was on spring break and then there were just too many things to catch up on after that. For instance, sewing!

In a wild moment of enthusiasm, I signed up for a sewing class on Monday and attended the class on Tuesday. And I loved it. I think the last time I touched a sewing machine was at least 10 yrs ago if not more and I did not make anything then. Just some alterations. And I used my mom's (updated) analog sewing machine then. At the class I was pleasantly surprised at how outdated I am, machines with needle threaders and a button that snips off the thread and I'm pretty sure many yet to be discovered features. And I used a rotary cutter and mat for the first time too. My mom is going to love that one! Yeah, I HAVE been living under a rock.

Well turns out my sewing skills are not so bad after all (except for the occasional crooked line). Here's a picture of what I made thanks to the very patient and wonderful teacher Judy at my local fabric store - Eddie's Quilting Bee. I'm definitely going back for more!

And onto sewing!


And here's a new treasury created in honor of the upcoming Mother's day. Basically they are, for the most part, presents that I might like for Mother's day, well for that matter ANY day. Anyone out there listening?
