Jewels from India

Oooohhhhh, I LOVE yarn!
I picked up a couple of skeins of recycled sari silk at last Novembers 'Knitting and stitching show' and have been lifting them out of the bag, stroking, cooing, and dreaming about what they may one day become...(can you tell my baby Left home last year???)

Then a gorgeous new shop opened in nearby Clitheroe called 'Patches and Buttons', and there on one of there sumptuous displays was more sari fabric - ahhhh, bliss.

So purse a few pounds lighter, the skeins all ended up with Mummy fig. My mother personifies patience, and kindly spent several hours de-skeining and balling up my beautiful sari silk.
and all I need to do now is come up with an idea for something to make...

so, while it rains outside, and once the drab domestic chores are all done, I will be sitting in the arm chair, fondling my fibres and dreaming about the colours of India.



Aahhhhh Wonderful!!

Ok I did the heel clicking but I'm still here :) But it's ok today was a sunny day and we even went out for a walk! Oh yes Scotland certainly has extreme weather, one day winter blizzards, next day sun and flowers. LOL
Just as well cos only chocolate in the house is the small people's one Easter egg that their Dad brought them. Don't think I'd be popular if they disappeared ;)

Gorgeous wool, I love recycled sari products. Can I be cheeky and ask are they very expensive?

Oooh those colours are delicious! I'm sure you'll come up with an idea soon, they're almost too lovely to use! Happy Easter

Mmmm, those sari skein yarns are gorgeous, what colours! I could spend a fortune in wool and fabric shops. Pity I haven't got a fortune!
