View Full Version : Nice Find

I browsed through my local Salvation Army today and made a nice find. Among the sweaters was a red sweater that looked to be a XXL, but it was marked Small. Anyway, it was in great condition and looked like it was new. It is made of 70% lambwool and 30% angora rabbit. I paid $3.00 for it and presently, I have most of it unraveled and ready to be made into another garment. Now what will it be?

Thrift stores ROCK! I bought two sweaters from thrift stores in men's XL - one's 100% wool (very nice quality too) and the other's 100% alpaca (super-soft!), and I hope to get a cardigan or pullover from each of them. The only trouble I've had with unraveling sweaters is that on ones that have been worn several times, the underarm seams get a little felted...grr!
