Have any of you used recycled Sari silk?

I have some & am knitting up swatches & it does not feel as smooth as I anticipated. I like the slubbiness of it.

Thanks for your input as always.

Patterns for mature men

Hi guys,

I'm just wondering where do you fellow mature guys go for patterns for yourselves? So many of the popular magazines tend to cater to the younger guys. All well & good but...........

Do you adapt patterns?

Look for vintage designs?

Create your own?

I'm at the stage where I'm about ready to knit for myself & not thrilled at the choice out there. Yes I did the course at F.I.T. but I am interested to hear what you guys have to say.

A lot of us knit for other folk. Family, friends or charity, not that many of us seem to knit for ourselves. Is there a reason for that?
