My demo is of techniques developed to knit with the beautiful Recycled Sari Silk ribbon from Treenway Silks (a Colorado company!). I spent some time this summer obsessed with this intriguing alternative fiber source which comes from co-ops in India where women sew together strips of gorgeous fabrics reclaimed from the sari garment industry. The colors and textures are inspiring. And the knitted fabric is like nothing else I've seen.
Sari Silk creates a unique garment every time. You just have to try this one on. I've got a small series of garments designed for the techniques. The first pattern will be up in the Ravelry shop soon. I hear that a big shipment of the yarns is due in mid October, just in time for gift knitting.
While we are anxiously awaiting the Sari Silk ribbon yarns, I'll also have my hand-dyed yarns, Just Beautiful Alpaca, and lots of shawls and garments to show you. Plus some of my favorite yarn places are included in the vendor list like Brown Sheep Company, Cowgirl Yarn, and Lambspun. So come along to KnitWear. Spend a Sunday getting inspired. Love to meet you there.
