I spent the weekend in the city with my sister. There was good food, good conversation and – of course – a lovely bit of thrifitng. While we didn't have a cabbage glass moment like the last time, we did find a few treasures including two cashmere sweaters to felt and sew with and two lambswool sweaters to unravel, dye, and reuse.
The project above is my first sweater unraveling project (except when knitting goes wrong). It was inspired by my love of knitting combined with doing the math on a knitting a sweater with new wool. (Once yarn is purchased the cost of a homemade sweater far exceeds what I would ever spend on a purchased sweater.) I found two perfect candidates this weekend both ready to dye and both buttery soft, and costing me $4 and $6 each. I'll share my progress with you as these projects take shape!
