recycled silk

When I found this recycled sari silk yarn over the summer, I was at a loss as to what to make out of it. So I made a scarf. In hindsight, I probably could have done something more interesting and usable, but the scarf is pretty nice. I finished it while I was in Ireland over the summer. I love the textures and colors in this yarn. Pictures really do not do it justice. This scarf was knit in a basic garter stitch, with 30 stitches across on size 11 needles (if I recall).


I finally finished this hat last night. I still need to weave in all the ends (and there are a lot of them!), but I'll get to it. The pattern is Flore from Knit Whits. I used Patons Grace, and I believe the colors are Ginger, Ruby, Terracotta, Viola (maybe), and Rose.
