thrift-store sweaters
Nice to see so many fans of liberating yarn from thrift-store sweaters. Today I went to Goodwill and found 2 sweaters to unravel. #1 323g. of lambswool/angora (one of my fave blends). The color is pumpkin! I'll certainly knit up a top from that without dyeing it, then probably dye whatever's left over. #2 is a tweedy charcoal gray in cotton/acrylic/nylon (213g.) from which I'll make a couple of pairs of socks.
