Knitting with Silk caps

I recently decided to play with some of the dyed caps Jared had done for me and thougth about knittting it without spinning it first. I carefully pulled apart the cap starting at the edge and made one contunious ribbon with it. Then rolled into a ball and knit just using garter stich and slipped stitched to create a fun little bag to put on my belt -just the right size for some ID, phone and some cash. I then embellished it with some charms and ribbon and voila - I loved it!! Lots of fun too. I may make some for the teens on my Xmas list. That is if the silk caps don't all sell first!
