I wonder if you coulda saved it :thinking:

I have some lambs pride I bought in the early 90's. I have been making a sweater out if it since then. Been working on it a little bit at a time. By now though I'm sick of looking at it and I don't want to even finish it. :rollseyes: I have some fisherman's wool, same verse as the first, some acrylic that I got when I first moved to Portland in 1993 and stash of some yarn (says 100% wool) in a shoebox I got at an estate sale with the original sales reciet in it from 1964.
