Glitz and Glamour

I received a parcel  from my sister-in-law yesterday , a wonderful display of glitz and glamour. Clare and my nieces went to an Alexander McQueen show a few months ago. Cameras and notebooks were strictly forbidden so Clare bought some postcards for me. The yarn is made from recycled sari material - I like that idea and like the yarn. I'm thinking of ways to use it. Some of the beads are Clare's handmade glass. Wonderful pastels that look good enough to eat!


  1. Oooooo glorious goodies .... sure to end up as some gorgeous tatting pieces !!!
    I know that recycled saree thread is sold in the US (seen it somewhere on the net years back - she used to recycle them into boas, scarves, etc. too) . Are you thinking of embroidering or tatting with it ?

    1. I'm thinking of knitting a scarf. I have a pattern designed for a multicolour yarn. I'll have to see if it works as well as I imagine.

  2. Craft gifts are always a joy to receive. Very nice.

  3. Oooo, such a lovely gift. I've seen this sari yarn and often wondered what it is like to use. I shall be interested to see what you do with it.
