New Yarn

Standard

Here is a picture off some pretty yarn I rescued from an ugly jumper, it is lovely and sparkly.  I got quite a lot – 1300 m of 4-ply, so I think I am going to make it into one of the jumpers from Jane Waller and Susan Crawford’s A Stitch In Time, a book I am madly in love with and insist that you all go out and buy now.  And possibly its sequel, volume two, which is also marvelous.  Rescuing yarn from ugly jumpers in a very cheap way to find yarn – this lot only cost me £6, whereas even for the cheapest of 4-ply in that quantity you would have to pay at least £15 for new yarn from a yarn shop.

Get me with my thrifty knitting!  How many of you out there have rescued yarn?  Let me know!
