Unravelling - Recycling Yarn
I love to find sweaters at thrift stores, made from gorgeous yarn. Because I can unravel them and make what I want!

Recently, I came across a red sweater, with bad seams that were coming apart. It was handknit, and the seams were not serged, so I knew I would be able to unravel it.

Brought it home, and got started, then used my yarn winder to make quick work of it. Now, I have lots and lots of nice boucle yarn.
