This is what I've done with the recycled Sari Silk yarn I got off Ebay. This yarn has such pretty, vibrant colors, but it is not easy to work with! Some if it falls apart, unwinds, unravels, is rough and even has bits of sticks or straw in it!
But it is SO pretty! The colors! It reminds me of the hippi days of yore. I made a hat, that is ribbed for a couple inches on the bottom, then knit the rest. And the purse I just kinda made up...I just knit with simple rib and knit the little flap on top and made a skinny rope type thing that gathers the purse together so on one side it shows the little flap and on the other side it shows the gathered rope thing. AND then the scarf, which I'm still knitting, that is a simple rib also.
I have not blocked anything yet. I also doubled this yarn with some Lion Brand Chenille that I also got from Ebay.
I wish my camara was better so you all could see how pretty the colors are for real.
Hope everybody had a good, safe and happy New Year.
