I have continued to binge on thrift store sweaters and recycled materials. It's an addiction, and it's weird. I enjoy thrifting more than shopping at yarn stores, and lately I've enjoyed the process of reclaiming the yarn more than I have actually enjoyed knitting it.
Part the First of this bizarre obsession:
|From Winter 2009|
Part the 2nd:
I may or may not have gone thrifting yesterday. For $1.09 a sweater, who would have been able to say no?
Certainly not me...
They're all wool blends. No acrylic. All soft and luxurious and HUGE. I can't wait to sink my little fingers into them.
And, perhaps the most exciting thing I've done in a while...
Part the Third:
Yarn from a t-shirt, lightly plied, and
AWESOME plarn. Plastic bags and casette tapes spun together. I love it. LOVE it.
Tonight I have 2.5 hours of Bach Choir, but hopefully I'll be able to post a tutorial on making plarn and t-shirt yarn in the near future. It's seriously addicting.
