Thanks, feministmama! I've been enamored of the idea of recycling yarn for awhile now. I'm going to hit the Salv-ar tomorrow! I'd go today, but my five year old is sick and has a ruptured eardrum.
btw, I'm taking a women's studies survey class this semester, and your username gives me a giggle. I'm trying to figure out just how many minors I'm allowed.

I've always wondered how that was done, but wasn't brave enough to try it. I too have sweaters in my closet that I love that I have long outgrown. Where are my scissors?
