Recycling yarn...
So I have been to Goodwill and TJ Max lately and have noticed some insanely hideous sweaters and scarves, but some of them have a lot of potential to be beautiful if I ripped out the work and knitted it into something new. My question is how do I go about ripping out something that was factory made? Where do I and how do I begin the unravelling process? Thanks!

Here is a great tutorial to get you started. The most important thing to remember when you're looking at thrift store sweaters is to make sure that the seams have not been serged. The tutorial will describe that and so much more.

Here is another one.

Have fun!!
