A while ago, I was involved in a Knitter's Treat Exchange, and the SP who treated me was Brandy from here http://purlparables.wordpress.com/ . I had taken to perusing her blog, and saw that she had a contest. Okay-it was all about her-facts that one could look up on her blog-sounds interesting, so I entered it. Well, come to find out- I won one of the prizes!!! When she said "sari silk", I thought- okay-one skein-I can find something to do with that. But noooo. 4- yes- F-O-U-R skeins of the stuff. Way cool. And so, I can make one of these http://www.recycledsilk.com/triangular.pdf or maybe even one of these- from Knitty.com (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall04?PATTunbiased.html
Does anyone have any experience with either pattern and could send me some feedback? Brandi very generously sent two colours- more of a red for 2 skeins and a darker purple-y colour for the other 2 skeins. The timing of this gift of yarn is perfect- I have just had some serious summer purse failure (I guess a 20 dollar purse just ain't up to snuff anymore).
Now, in terms of school, I just have one report left to write ( report on the results of a grant that I received), and then it is stick a fork in me time, because I am DONE for another year!
And so it goes.......................
