I Have a very amusing 10 year old knitting nut…lol
I like to go out to the local thirft store looking for neat finds. During this I found 2 huge balls of Navy 100% mercurized cotton. 2 Navy balls of sock yarn -made in France)
I thought I would take a wonder to the sweater section to peek at some recycling possiblities.
I found a beautiful wool sweater in a pale yellow with cream and grey flecking.
As I was checking out that, my daughter wanted a quick lesson on finding sweaters that are suitable, so I told her the low down on fibers, and how to check the seams and wether it will unravel easy.
Out of nowhere I hear, mom I scored big time. She comes running up to me with the most beautiful teal sweater, that was half angora and half alpaca and so soft. You couldn’t have picked a nicer one. (needless to say she claimed the first item knitted from it (perhaps a new winter hat
while I was getting the stuff gathered to photograph I found in the ball of cotton a brand new one of those darning needles with the curved tip on it (always wanted one of those)
Here’s the Porn for everyone.
Oh and the best part under 20.00cdn for it all.
