I’m so excited about this!
I had a huge amount of baby stuff ready for Salvation Army pick-up this week, and at the last minute I saw one of my boys’ baby sweaters on top of the box. It’s a really cute, dark gray, ribbed, 100% cotton pull-over from The Gap, size 6 months I’m pretty sure. I thought, what do I have to lose? I was just going to give it away anyhow, why not try unraveling it?
So I went to work. What a project that was!!! :shock: The shoulder seams were really bad for unraveling (ie. machine sewed) so I had to cut off a bunch…what a waste!!
But out of it I got a really good amount of nice fingering weight cotton yarn, about 7st/1" on size 3 needles. A bit of a pain to work with, but it knits up into a really nice soft fabric.
Feeling a bit sentimental, I decided that I’m going to use it to make a lacy scarf for myself so I can always have a bit of my boys’ baby-hood with me! Awwwwwww
Here’s a pic of my first baby wearing the sweater…
