I am mesmerized by banana yarn, it is so soft silky and luxurious.
This week I bought a 100g skein of Banana Yarn. The yarn is ideally knitted on a 6mm needle and it is a dense yarn so 1 skein = approx 70m.
I searched the net for info and patterns, and I was really pleased to find pictures of the harvesting and spinning process. I also found free 1 link for a bag pattern and another link for bag, stole and scarf patterns for sari silk remnants, that is spun in the same communities in Nepal.
I think I want to knit a hooded cowl with my skein and some hand dyed bamboo. I knitted a beautiful sample and discovered that my tension is 17 sts to 10 cm. While my brain was working away as a furious speed, Thomas was discovering the joy of a well draping skein! Well he has good taste......
