Silk Sari Knitting
Silk sari yarn is made from recycled Sari's as the name implies. It calls to me on some tactile level—as a ball— an object to sit on my shelf. It's so lustrous and colourful.
I tried to crochet it on various sized hooks. However I found that the change from a yarn to a fabric made it quite stiff, so I unravelled it—and started again.
I then moved onto knitting needles—simple knitting as the yarn is fancy enough.
By changing yarns every second row or so, swapping it with an indigo dyed cotton then again with a soft grey alpaca wool is helping with the handle. It is now growing into a simple scarf. The blobs of yellow and green frayed fibres I just love. As I am knitting the air is filled with fragrant smells of incense. It's got history this yarn.
