Terri is this wonderful artist and I have been meaning to show you what she does and makes.
Not only is Terri terribly creative she’s also a fellow Darn Good Yarner. So, she wanted to show me what she created with bits of Sari Ribbon in a no-knit, no-crochet project. I think it’s wonderful when we can stretch our imaginations and use funky materials in such cool ways!
Enjoy the pics but first check out a few of her links:

Check out the one skein scarf that’s super easy and takes no time at all to make. Best of all it’s made from recycled silk sari remnants and is created by women. No sweatshops, no child labor and only at www.darngoodyarn.com
To make it:
Get one skein of one of the following yarns:
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!

Mixed media intimidates the hell out of me. Sure, I wish I could say, I can combine ribbon, paint, beads, old print media and present you with something fantastico. Nope, not happenening. But, I know someone who can do that! Ginny of Small Studio Productions! An amazing artist and she also carries a fantastic array of hard to find crafting products like bakery twine in different colors and vintage Jell-O molds!
She has a few venues that you should poke around:
Ginny often goes to conventions and shows (so keep up with her on her blog http://smallstudio.typepad.com)
And now for some eye candy! I spy with my eye, some recycled silk sari ribbon from Darn Good Yarn!

When I’m on my way to yoga sometimes I like a little extra something for my outfit aside from my pants and shirt. I was staring at a pile of samples this afternoon and I started playing with our fantastic Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon.
I came up with a super quick no knit, no crochet Cowl/Scarf. This quick craft project is also easy and fun to do with a child as it requires just the skill of braiding and having fun with the textures. I find there is such beauty in yarns that it’s sometimes nice to just display that fact on it’s own and that’s where the inspiration came from for this scarf. All you need are three lengths of about 5 feet of Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon . I used my arms length to measure this. You may want more or less depending on how many loops you’d like around your neck or how long you’d like it to drape.
I first knotted the three ends together. I then loosely braided the Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon together for about 7 inches, then knotted it off. I then jumped about 4 inches and put another knot in the ribbon, braided the remainder and tied to the end to make a loop. You don’t have to loop it. You can just knot both ends and where it as a long slinky scarf that’s perfect for summer. And that’s it! This yarn is so darn rustic and funky and artsy, I wanted to make a simple items that shows it off and I think this does a lovely job doing it.
A variation I did with the ribbon was cut my favorite sections from the Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon and then tie them back together so that way I could make sure I got all of my favorite colors in the piece. I can’t wait to wear it out! you Buy the Sari Ribbon By Clicking HERE!
