I love giving presents and I really love wrapping them. When I was little, I remember sitting with my mom before Christmas and meticulously wrapping presents and creasing the edges. As I grew up, my wrapping style changed a little and I got a little more artsy and starting “coloring outside of the lines”.
I wanted to share with you how a gift I recently gave looked when I wrapped it in simple tissue paper and then used the Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon. You can check out the whole category of my Recycled Sari Ribbons by clicking here

Sometimes, you run across fiber artists that blow your socks off and I have the privilege of supplying yarn to this type of artist, meet Nancy of Nancyyule.com! Please take a moment and poke around (and buy!) http://www.nancyyule.com
It will inspire and amaze you. I bet you never thought fiber could loop and turn and suspend the way Nancy makes it. I didn’t either until I saw the pictures! Feel free to click on any of the pictures below and it will take you over to her site!
Thank you for inspiring all of us Nancy!

I was recently contacted by Melissa who is associated with this website
She wanted to share an easy basketweave baby blanket pattern with you for free. She makes these blankets and sends them to Romania.
And if you know me, you know I’m a knitter that needs pretty, easy and quick patterns!
It is an easy basketweave pattern with an eyelet border that can be easily enlarged to make an afghan or larger blanket. Here is the link: http://www.forgive490.com/EasyBasketweaveBabyBlanket.php
You could totally use our banana fiber yarns to make a beautiful and colorful blanket!

This is such a fun project! The entire bag is worked in the round, and includes tapestry crochet techniques for the Om symbol. The bright jewel tones and earthy feel is just such a great mix for a Yoga Mat Bag. You can also use it for those Pilates fanatics too!

The finished bag can be worn across the body or backpack style, and the drawstring closure keeps your mat secure. This bag is gorgeous and versatile.

How to make the Darn Good Yarn Wine Bottle Bag
Get a pair of size 15 needles,
get 2- 100g balls of the yarn we call the blender
You can get a little bit of ribbon too (or you can use left over yarn) This will be used in the finished product.. I’ll explain in a little bit
So, this one is easy: Cast on 39 sts and work in moss stitch (k1, p1) until your rectangle measures 6.25 inches long. Now stitch up the side. Ok now measure 3 inches down. Remember that ribbon? Yes? Well weave it in and out of your project. When you slip the bottle of wine in, you’ll use this to tighten the bag around the neck of the bottle.
Don’t like wine? Find some olive oil and use the same mechanics to give a stunning gift!
Not only is the inside goodies great but this bag totally has a chance of being re-used and will make your present look like the best one under the tree or on the table!

I love local artists! I have to live vicariously through everyone else who has time to knit because I don’t have time anymore…tres sad. But Rebecca, owner of Rivka Designs, had items which really struck my interest. And she is now making items out of Darn Good Yarn’s Premium Recycled Silk!
Rebecca sells her amazing wares in some high-end shops in northern Cali. She has also been setting up shop at Farmers Markets and Renaissance Fairs for over 6 years!
