Yep, #gridjunky is on the cover of a magazine. And this puny Instagram image doesn’t do justice to the beautiful printing and paper stock of #contentmagazine. 
The piece pictured is called Render Alpha. It is 100% silk recycled from an Alfani women’s sweater-dress.
I’m grateful and thankful for @contentmag giving me the cover feature. The issue is beautiful.

I’m revisiting this Shetland/Merino blend. I recycled it from an American Eagle sweater, and knit just one hat from this batch. #knitters #knitting #recycledyarn #yarnstash

I recycled this from a Nordstrom men’s cardigan. The label says: “100% Scottish Shetland wool.” I never took a picture of the original sweater.

This image is from January 1st, 2010. It’s the first sweater I ever recycled into yarn. I never took a picture of the original sweater, though.
It’s 70% cotton 30% lambs’ wool recycled from an Old Navy women’s sweater. The structure consists of three two-ply fingering weights held together into a light worsted weight.

Banana Republic 100% Lamb’s Wool. The original sweater was knit with a double strand of lace weight. The gauge swatches in the last photo demonstrate the native two strand weight worked on US3’s on the left, and a three strand on US4’s. To knit the latter, I split the sleeve sections into individual strands, shown in the second to the last photo.

Scored these vintage skeins today (130706).
Got around to washing these, and did a bit of quality control. There were a few knots and breaks that needed tending to (130728).

Almost done with these leggers. Recycled the yarn from this sweater.
