I’ve already been in love with crocheting since I was a little kid (about 6 years old) when my mother gave me a hook and some yard and taught me how to do chain stitches. Eventually she taught me single, double and triple crochet — who knew it would carry over with me after all these years? About 5 years ago, I started crocheting silver bracelets while adding little rondelles to them. It was, in short, awesome.
So while I’ve not been denying my yarn/fiber side of my creativity, I’ve been denying the cloth side of my creativity – and with good reason.
All that was thrown out the window when we went to Jaipur. Colin insisted that I buy 2 saris. Now, I am hoping to get a sari every month — OY VEY!!!
Below are the images of the material for the sari. The green/blue one is so beautiful it’s beyond words. I had to have it the moment I saw it – it reminded me of a peacock, and I love the colors of the peacock – so deep and rich. The other is one that I wanted in a red shade, but yet I wanted it to have shades of pink in it, making it more like a bit like a fuchsia color. While it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, it made me happy enough.
So here they are – click to embiggen!
Now I’ve gone off and bought another sari this past Saturday. I know it’s beautiful, but I have completely forgotten what it looks like. I can’t wait to get it this Saturday. Now I need to buy shoes and jewelry. *squees* MORE SHOPPING!!!!! LOL
Poor Colin. He didn’t know what new beast he’s unleashed by insisting that I buy a couple of saris. I will be honest, I’ve been playing around and wrapping myself up in them and I can’t wait to wear them somewhere. They are freaking gorgeous!!! I just have to get them finished up, then I will be ready to go and play in them.
