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.
100% wool recycled from a sweater called “Ashes.” Never heard of it.
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.
This is my color palette for Gridjunky Fall 2013. It’s called “Indian Summer.”
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).
I decided to add my labels on my bombs for this year’s Sub Zero Street Festival.
Almost done with these leggers. Recycled the yarn from this sweater.
A complex neutral. Gray/Brown 100% cotton 11 strand worsted, recycled from a BR men’s sweater.
Finally found a true black.
100% cotton triple strand recycled from a men’s High Sierra sweater.
I’m bringin’ the cab.
