Sunday Update!

April 10, 2011

Hi friends!

A rare Sunday update but I’m just too excited… I have to show… here’s the video!!!!



And the winners are…..

April 4, 2011

Hi friends,

OK this was so tough. The one terrible downside to these contests is choosing. I personally hate it because there are usually some good ones out there! This time it was really tough because I had over 300 entries… um holy smokes! And they were all super inventive. But alas, I had to take a big-girl-pill and pick one even though I felt like kicking and screaming.

So, below are the names of the winners of the silk sari ribbon color naming challenge!
Congrats and stay tuned for the next contest, you could be the next winner! But for today, these winners will get a free skein of the color they won for!

And for this week, these new colors will be on sale! So get ‘em while they’re hot!

How flippen cute?!

This headband was inspired when I cut my bangs too much…uh oh. So the headband helped make my botched haircut job look halfway decent. See more of the drama on this video:

So, this kit will include enough recycled silk sari ribbon to make this headband along with a link to instructions and the beads.

You just need to supply the glue gun and a stick or two of hot glue.

You can choose which two flower colors you’d like on your headband. If you would like other color combos, just email us and ask and we’ll make it work for you!

Get your size 19 knitting needles. Cast on 5 and work the whole skein up in garter stitch. Yea it’s simple. but like what I always say, you don’t need to over-complicate a complex yarn with a crazy pattern. Let the yarn speak for itself!
