I love em!
I've made sweaters, (kids sweaters), hats, scarves, throw pillow covers, fingerless gloves..--lots of things..
this sweater was made from bargain bin.. 2 dark pink balls (2 different dye lots, 1 grey, 1 green, 1 light pink, (and 1.5 balls of left over (from an other project) peach..)
by them selves, not enough for much, but together? a work of art!
--and OK this pair of sweaters,(1 ) (2) together required 2 balls each of 5 colors, (white, aqua, teal, taupe, dr brown) (and with an other ball of white, there will be vest for Miss C--(no photo yet) )
and 1 ball each of Red, yellow, blue, green, purple, (plus 4 balls of black). and i got this double knit vest
I love using colors, and stripes (narrow ones or broad ones are a great way to mix up odds and end of balls of yarn, and to take odd balls and put them together to make something!
