Title: Purple Silk Sari Ribbon Bowl
Post by: Mistress Jennie on February 26, 2019 06:49:31 AM
This bowl was whipped up as an extra for LeapFeetFirst in the Asheville Adventure Swap.  It's made of sari silk ribbon yarn, that is made from worn out saris that would otherwise end up in landfills.  They are rescued, sliced, stitched, and dyed, and given new life as yarn.  Both colors came from Darn Good Yarn.  I'm not sure what the purple one is, since I bought it as part of a sample sale, and it didn't have any info with it, but the turquoise is their 'Indian Brushstrokes'.  The pattern was also from DGY, and came free in one of their yarn-of-the-month boxes.  It can be found in both knit and crochet HERE (https://www.darngoodyarn.com/products/classic-fiber-bowl).

How fun! I like the whimsy of blue on the top, too!

SO vibrant and pretty! It is a sight for sore eyes, as I have just spent 3+ hours outside moving white, white snow around!
